Sex in car ruled a felony (ANSA) - Rome, August 1 - The Italian supreme court ruled Monday that sex in a car parked in a public place is a felony.

The ruling came in a case involving a couple in the northern town of Biella, in Piedmont, who were surprised by a night patrol who found them "completely naked, one on top of the other," inside their car parked in the town's main piazza, according to the report.

The accused asked that the offense be considered a misdemeanor crime for public indecency, but the court was unmoved, confirming an earlier felony ruling.

The couple now awaits a sentence, which ranges from three months to three years in prison.
