Dennis Beach

Summary: Four teenagers are accused of having sex just at the shoreline of a popular beach on the fourth of July.

Four teenagers are in hot water after getting freaking in the water off Mayflower Beach. Three of the teenagers were arrested for allegedly having sex in the water while the other was sent to juvenile court. A fifth teenager was arrested for not listening to police requests to leave the area.


Witnesses claim teenagers were in the water having sex while a group of onlookers was cheering them on. The four adults will not be arraigned until they have participated in a special problem, likely after at least six months. Judge Robert Welsh III agreed to postpone sentencing until they had time to participate in a youth offenders program.

The four arrested for disorderly conduct were 19-year-olds Julianna Murphy of Penfield, New York; Lukas Kaminski of Hopkinton; Stephen Cerrone of Quechee, Vermont; and 18-year-old Molly Hines of Penfield, New York. The fifth teenager is a 17-year-old so his name and charges are sealed in juvenile court. The police report cites them for causing a scene at Dennis Beach, filled with 4th of July crowds.

Police were called to the scene when a beach monitor approached Dennis Detective Matthew Turner about reports of several people having sex in the water around 1:30 p.m. on Independence Day. Turner approached the beach, he saw the teenagers “embraced with one another” about 100 feet from shore.

He wrote in the police report, “I could not observe exactly what was going on, however both couple(s) were extremely closely embraced. Each embraced couple were at a minimum kissing and stumbling about in the waves.”

Onshore, about 25 adults and children stood in “disbelief.” Another 30 people were in the water watching and cheering the teenagers on. One man with two young children said, “This is disgusting, why is this allowed to go on here?”

Turner directed the teenagers to stop and leave the area but they did not respond. A lifeguard tried blowing a whistle but the teenagers still did not respond. A lifeguard then entered the water and told them to leave but still nothing. Turner wrote that the couple continued “embracing and kissing.” Once a second lifeguard entered the water, the teenagers left the water.

Turner was able to detect the presence of alcohol on the students with slurred speech and a smell of alcohol. The teenagers were yelling and crying for Turner to let them go with around 300 people watching the incident unfold. According to the report, Hines refused to listen to Turner’s commands to stay seated.

The four in the water denied any wrongdoing, being placed under arrest for disorderly conduct. Kaminski was not one of the teenagers in the water but he was arrested on the same charge. Police had repeatedly asked him to leave the area but he kept approaching the officers and the other teenagers.

Eventually, ten more police officers were called to the scene to help transport the teenagers and disperse the crowds. Dennis police Lt. Peter Benson said, “During the daytime hours at the height of Fourth of July, something like this is kind of rare. We just don’t make a lot of arrests at the beach. Generally we get a family crowd going to these beaches and not causing incidents.” He noted that there was only one other arrest on the beach. An intoxicated man became confrontational with officers and had to be removed from the area.

The adults being charged will meet with members of the Cape and Islands District Attorney’s office to evaluate the effectiveness of the Youthful Diversion Program. The program is an option for first-time offenders between the ages of 18-21 that are charged with specific minor offenses. The district attorney’s office stated, “These young adults participate in appropriate counseling and education as well as community service projects. Upon successful completion of the program, the District Attorney’s Office will not prosecute the case and there will be no record of the offense.”

Do you think this program is a good option for young adults that make a simple stupid mistake? Tell us in the comments below.
