A pregnant woman has been banned from coming back to London after she was caught performing oral sex on her husband near the elevators at the Westfield shopping centre while their children looked on.
Akeela Ali, 25, and her husband Fahad Bilal told the court that they got carried away by a romantic situation and that “it just happened.” According to Metro, the couple are from Newport in South Wales and they had driven to the west London mall with their 3 and 5 year-old children for a day trip.
The couple let their children run around and play as they “got busy” on the couch near the elevators, but even when their children returned to them, they kept going. Surveillance footage shows Ali’s head moving up and down and her masturbating her husband with her right hand.
They told the court they “thought about stopping” when their children interrupted them, but they kept going anyway. Ali tried to defend herself by saying her hormones were “everywhere” because of her pregnancy, and that she suddenly felt so horny in the mall that she couldn’t stop herself even though she knew it was wrong.
“She was aware that one of the children was sitting beside Mr Bilal for a portion of the event,” Prosecutor Arlene De Silva said. “She said she regretted the incident and was ashamed.”
Bilal told police that what they did was a simple “human mistake.”
“It was not that busy at the time but he knew it was a public area,” De Silva added.
“You understand the seriousness of this is because you are in public, your children are there, other people’s children are there. Fortunately I have been told no one in particular has seen it, but you are the adult and you should know better,” the judge told the couple, who represented themselves but were sentenced separately.
“I’m going to exclude you from coming within the M25 for eight weeks,” the judge concluded.
