A California couple, Erica and Curtis Beck, met a man online whom they then met for a sexual encounter. When the man believed he was being recorded he went to the police.

Their sexcapades came to a head in December when a 37-year-old man spoke to Burbank police. He said he arranged a sexual encounter with Erica Beck over the Internet, but had no idea that her husband was allegedly videotaping the encounter, reported local station KNBC.

The Becks were arrested and released.

The couple is only facing misdemeanor charges, so it is unusual that police decided to release their mug shots. Cops say they hope the photos will encourage other potential victims to come forward, according to the NBC affiliate.
