Update: Butler County's Edwin Tobergta, 34, will spend the next 11 months behind bars after he was found guilty of having sex with a rubber pool raft in public— for the fifth time.
In June, several neighborhood children caught Tobergta doing the nasty with an inflatable raft outside of his Hamilton, OH home and reported the incident to their parents.
"This is about lewd, obscene behavior in the presence of, especially in this case, presence of little children. That's something society's not going to tolerate," Butler County Common Pleas Court Judge Charles Pater said last week at the sentencing.
Tobergta has since apologized for his actions.
An Ohio man was arrested for public indecency after he was caught engaging in sexual relations with a pool raft.
Apparently this is his fifth arrest for similar offenses.
In this most recent incident, Edwin Charles Tobergta, 34, of Hamilton allegedly stepped outside of his Harmon Ave. home on June 17 at approximately 1:20 p.m. completely naked, the police report said.
A child in his neighborhood then witnessed the accused "having sexual relations with a rubber pool float." It is unclear whether the raft was in water or on dry land.
Tobergta was indicted by a grand jury yesterday for public indecency, a fifth-degree felony. Should he be convicted (and c'mon it's his fifth offense), he could face 12 months behind bars.
Here's what the Norwalk Reflector had to say about one of his previous offenses:
In August 2011, Tobergta, was arrested at his home after he was seen engaging in sexual conduct with a pink inflatable swimming pool raft, according to police records. The incident allegedly occurred in an alley behind his home. The witness, who was the owner of the raft, reported to police that the suspect took the raft with him after being shouted at to stop, according to records.
