Two priests were caught performing oral sex on each other in public.
Reverend Diego Berrio and Reverend Edwin Giraldo Cortes were caught by Miami Beach police performing oral sex on each other in a parked car on Monday (September 3), the Miami Herald reports.
Both men were charged with lewd and lascivious behaviour and Cortes was additionally charged with public indecency.
The officer who saw them said: “I parked my vehicle and approached the passenger side of the vehicle on foot.

“I observed defendant Berrio in the passenger seat, performing oral sex on defendant Giraldo who was seated in the driver’s seat.
“Giraldo’s pants were unzipped and his genitals exposed. This act was occurring in full view of the public passing by on Ocean Drive and the sidewalk.”
Berrio has now been removed as pastor of Mision San Juan Diego and Cardinal Blase J Cupich issued a statement saying further action would depend on the results of the investigation.
The statement read: “It is our responsibility to ensure those who serve our people are fit for ministry.
“We take this matter very seriously and will provide updates as they become available.”
