KELOWNA – A Kelowna woman caught on video having sex in a stranger's hot tub says the teenager she was with told her he knew the homeowner.

Sahra Clementi, 42, pleaded guilty to loitering, mischief and possession of crystal meth and cocaine in Kelowna Provincial Court today, Dec. 2. Her lawyer, Michael Newcombe, told Judge Lisa Wyatt the longtime Kelowna resident born in India had been drinking with 18-year-old Noah Alexander McDonald when they entered a private hot tub on a deck near a home on McDougall Street May 25.

Footage reviewed by the homeowner the next day shows the couple “skulking around” shortly before 3 a.m., entering the hot tub and engaging in “an intimate act,” according to Grant Gray, representing the Crown.

"He told her that he knew these people," he said.

The homeowner gave the footage to the media and Wyatt says police recognized Clementi immediately.

She was arrested May 27 in downtown Kelowna. McDonald, who has no criminal history in B.C., turned himself in when he saw the media coverage and pleaded guilty to trespassing and mischief Nov. 29.

Clementi’s record goes back to 2007 and includes numerous charges of trafficking, possession of stolen property and breaches of parole and conditions. She has seven children. 

Wyatt sentenced her to six days in jail, community service and ordered her to pay $100 to the homeowner for “costs incurred for chemicals and cleaning of the hot tub.”

She was also fined $100 for two red zone breaches Aug. 6 and 25 when she was found with small amounts of crystal meth and cocaine.
