Margaret "Peggy" Klemm, 68, a married grandmother of 14, will have to spend six months in jail for her June arrest for having sex in public at a retirement facility called The Villages in Orlando, Florida. The Orlando Sun-Sentinel reported July 31 on the sentencing, noting that there was a "downside to being a cougar."
Peggy Klemm stood before the judge with tears streaming down her face. She mouthed "I love you" to her husband of 50 years, according to WKMG in Orlando.
But Frank Klemm didn't receive a sentence. That's because he wasn't the guy his wife had been having public sex with, an act for which she was convicted of indecent exposure and disorderly conduct. Besides, having sex with one's husband most likely would not qualify her for the somewhat perjorative appellation "cougar."
No, her sex partner in June had been 48-year-old David Bobilya of Summerfield. Bobilya received the same sentence.
The two had been arrested when police had found them fully engaged, “on the stage in the middle of ‘the square’…having sexual intercourse,” The Smoking Gun reported. "The Square" is Lake Sumter Landing Market Square, where the couple were having sex in the pavilion. According to police, Klemm had her shirt pulled down and was pantless. Bobilya had his pants around his ankles.
The Villages, where the motto is "Friendliest Retirement Hometown," is the home of 100,000 55-and-older resdients. It is known for its wild atmosphere and public sex, according to the Huffington Post.
But Frank Klemm, who Peggy takes care of since he lost a leg to cancer, says his wife deserves a second chance. He told WKMG, "She is a super woman as far as I'm concerned. And she deserves a second chance. That's all I have to say."
Peggy Klemm's arrest came just four days after she was placed on probation for reckless driving. Her sentence, according to her lawyer, was a plea deal done in her best interest, because she could have been punished with more than a year in jail.
