Loud sex woman coughs to ASBO breach

Guilty of 'unnatural' vocalisation

The Tyne and Wear woman whose raucous lovemaking was described as "murder" and "unnatural" by neighbours has admitted breaching an ASBO ordering her to turn down the volume.

Caroline Cartwright, 48, was hauled before magistrates back in April for five breaches of a noise abatement order which required her to cut the decibels while making merry with husband Steve.

This evidently didn't work, so the court issued the ASBO insisting Cartwright desist "making excessive noise, knocking, shouting, screaming or vocalisation that can be heard in neighbouring properties or outside the house".

She was, however, cuffed on 18, 22 and 26 April when long-suffering fellow residents of Washington alerted police that she'd failed to put a sock in it. Next door neighbour Rachel O'Connor explained: "The noise sounds like they are both in considerable pain. I cannot describe the noise. I have never ever heard anything like it."

The matter finally ended in Newcastle Crown Court, where Cartwright appealed the ASBO on the grounds she is "unable to control her vocalisation during lovemaking, and any attempt at restricting her behaviour is a breach of her human rights".

Recorder Jeremy Freedman disagreed, and said of the Cartwrights' sexual performance: "It was clearly of a very disturbing nature and it was also compounded by the duration - this was not a one-off, it went on for hours at a time. It is further compounded by the frequency of the episode, virtually every night."

Cartwright finally threw in the towel and pleaded guilty to three breaches of the ASBO. She'll be sentenced on 18 January, the BBC notes. ®
