RPSO: Couple arrested for having sex in Courthouse stairwell

ALEXANDRIA, La. (RPSO) - It wouldn’t seem to be a romantic hot spot, but an Alexandria man and Pineville woman are facing charges for having sex in the stairwell of the Rapides Parish Courthouse Wednesday morning.

According to the Rapides Parish Sheriff’s Office, Miguel Glorioso, 20, and Jamie Lee Coutee, 19, are both facing an obscenity charge after reports were made of commotion in the fifth-floor stairwell around 10:20 a.m. Wednesday. When an employee went to investigate, they found the couple having sex, RPSO said.

After seeing the employee, the two fled, but the employee was able to identify Glorioso, a trustee assigned to cleaning the courthouse. Court Security then located him, and he was identified by the witness, arrested and booked into the Detention Center. Investigators then determined the female suspect as Coutee, who was arrested around 8 p.m. Wednesday evening in Alexandria.

Coutee has been released on a $1,500 bond. Glorioso remains in jail and has been removed from trustee status as well as the courthouse work detail.
