Italian Convicted of "Sexual Violence" for V-Day Kiss

According to the court, Valter approached the cashier, named only as Federica, "with the clear intention of kissing her on the lips".

Aware that the manager was approaching she twisted her head away, so he planted the kiss on her cheek instead.

Offended none the less, Federica, whose age was not given in court, went to the police and denounced her boss for "sexual harrassment".

"Excuse me," Mr Brown ventured to the officer towering above him, "do you realise your horse is gay?". It seemed a harmless enough, if not rivetingly witty, remark. Moments later, however, Mr Brown was sobered by the appearance of two squad cars. A posse of unmounted officers arrested him and charged him under Section 5 of the Public Order Act for making homophobic remarks.

His remark, it was alleged, was deemed likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress. The Act, however, does not make clear whether equine alarm and distress are covered by its provisions, or whether only human beings are likely to be offended.

The police took the view that it was the human beings who could have been harassed.
