Adultery is a crime in New York. We said so a while back and did a whole bunch of posts on the subject. But today we learned that Suzanne M. Corona became only the 13th person in New York to be convicted under that statute for adultery. She really pushed her luck with police by not only committing adultery but also having sex with Justin Amend in a park in full view of children and their mothers. Both were arrested for lewdness and public indecency. But Mrs. Corona also got the charge of adultery which carries a penalty of 90 days in prison and a 500 dollar fine.
Section 255.17 of the state penal law states, “A person is guilty of adultery when he engages in sexual intercourse with another person at a time when he has a living spouse, or the other person has a living spouse.” A class B misdemeanor, a conviction on an adultery charge is punishable by up to 90 days in jail or a $500 fine.
No word yet if the Coronas will divorce because of this indiscretion.
