A lesbian couple arrested in April for public indecency and attempted bribery have been indicted by a Chattahoochee Judicial Circuit grand jury this week, according to the Ledger-Enquirer.

Columbus is approximately 100 miles south of Atlanta.

Jessica Bass, 18, and Nakita Holt, 21, were caught having sex in a Columbus State University library in April by a CSU police officer.

Bass will face charges of public indecency, a misdemeanor, and bribery charges, a felony, for allegedly offering the arresting officer $100 to let them go free. Holt faces indecency charges only.

David Helmick, the assistant district attorney who is prosecuting the case, was mum on the details but said he expects the case to go to trial sometime in late September or early October in a telephone interview today. Helmick added that he did not want to speculate whether or not a heterosexual couple found in similar circumstances would face the same charges.

“I’m really limited in what I’m able to say as this being a pending case and all,” Helmick said. “I think that’s all that I can say.”

A call to Bass’ defense attorney went unanswered.
