Caroline Cartwright to Face Prison for Loud Sex?

NEWCASTLE, England (CBS) Caroline Cartwright, of northeast England, has loud sex. Really, really loud sex.

So loud, in fact, that she has been jailed for it and forced to live in separate housing from her loud lovemaking partner in crime, husband Steve. She has been the subject of multiple noise abatement orders since 2005 and has broken all of them, according to the Daily Mail.

Now the Newcastle Crown Court has told her that she has one more chance to button up or spend 12 weeks in prison.

The sex has been described as "murder" and "unnatural" and is so loud that it drowns out her neighbors' televisions. The complaints began about two years earlier when multiple complaints from neighbors, a postman and even a mother walking her child to school, prompted police to issue a "noise abatement order."

She went on to violate the order at least five times and was issued an even stronger "anti-social behavior order," which she proceeded to break three more times before she recived an eight week prison sentence, suspended for 12 months, in January.

At the time Cartwright claimed that she could help but have loud sex, according to the Daily Mail.

"I did not understand why people asked me to be quiet because to me it is normal," Cartwright told the court. "I have tried to minimize the situation by having sex in the morning - not at night - so the noise was not waking anybody."

Cartwright has managed to avoid jail again by pleading guilty to breaking the terms of her suspended sentence, although the court made it clear that this will be her last chance to live the quiet life, the paper reported.

"It is clear to this court with your noisy love-making and playing loud music you have made your neighbors' lives thoroughly miserable," Recorder Jeremy Freedman told Cartwright in court. "If you breach this [order] you will be going to prison. This court is giving you one last chance."
