Chicago Priests Caught Having Sex in Public on Ocean Drive

Chicago Priests Caught Having Sex in Public on Ocean Drive

Beach Police say two men from Illinois — Diego Berrio, who is 39, and Edwin Giraldo Cortez, age 30 — were caught performing oral sex on each other in

a car parked along Ocean Drive, Miami Beach’s busiest tourist road, around 3:20 p.m. Labor Day. Someone called 911 to report that two men were [engaging in sexual activity] on Miami Beach’s most famous street, and when officers arrived, they walked right up to the window to see the [priests] going at it on the northbound side of the street.

At first, the cops drove by and saw two men “shifting their position[s] in the front seat of the vehicle.” So the officers parked and approached the car. The vehicle did not have tinted windows.

“I observed Defendant Berrio in the passenger seat, performing oral sex on Defendant Giraldo, who was seated in the driver’s seat,” an MBPD officer wrote in an arrest report. “Giraldo’s pants were unzipped and open. His penis was erect and fully visible. This act was occurring in full view of the public passing by on Ocean Drive and on the sidewalk.”

Both men were arrested on charges of misdemeanor lewd and lascivious behavior, while Giraldo was slapped with an added felony charge of indecent exposure. The men listed their addresses as 2323 N. Wilie Rd., Arlington Heights, Illinois — which is a Catholic church called Misión San Juan Diego.

A glance at the Facebook page of the church shows Berrio is a prominent priest there. He is also listed as a judge for marriage-annulment cases in the Archdiocese of Chicago. It’s unclear what role Giraldo plays at the church.

The men have not told authorities what brought them to Miami Beach. If the police account of the public sex is accurate, the case once again highlights the sad state of affairs within the oppressive and anti-LGBTQ Catholic Church. The two men apparently couldn’t keep their hands off each other in broad daylight on Ocean Drive.
