A lawyer in Peru is finding himself in hot water after he broadcast himself having sex with a woman on a live Zoom court hearing last week.
The judge presiding over the court hearing voiced his disgrace with Hector Paredes Robles.
Astonished onlookers witnessed Paredes Robles take off his clothes and sit on a chair before a woman, believed to be one of his clients, appears in the frame and sits on his lap.
Judge John Chahua Torres sent a police officer to intervene as another participant tried to warn him that he was being watched and recorded on a live feed.
The lawyer was supposed to be taking part in a hearing for a client who was allegedly involved in a organized crime operation.
While the sex continued on the Zoom meeting, judge Torres says, "We are witnessing obscene acts which represent a violation of public decency and are aggravated by the fact they are being recorded nationally."
After the camera was confirmed to belonging to Paredes Robles, the judge ordered an immediate investigation. He was barred from any further involvement in the case he was supposed to be attending.
After the hearing ended, judge Torres added, "Hector Paredes Robles has been fully identified as the lawyer who has disrespected the dignity of this court as well as the other lawyers present and the legal profession as a whole."
