BOZEMAN – A man and a woman were arrested in Bozeman after allegedly having sex in a local hot springs children’s pool, within feet of children swimming.
Dawn Danielle Klein, 33, and Aaron Hayes Miller, 37, were arrested on Friday and charged with indecent exposure. Klein appeared in Gallatin County Justice Court on Monday. Her bail was set at $5,000.
Miller is scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday.
According to court documents, a Gallatin County deputy sheriff responded to a sexual crime report at the hot springs on Gallatin Road around 1:15 p.m. on Friday.
When the deputy arrived, the couple had already left the premises. They were located and stopped by law enforcement further south on Gallatin Road.
The hot springs manager and four witnesses said they saw Klein and Miller having sexual intercourse approximately 10 feet from children in the pool. Court documents state one witness reported seeing Klein’s bare buttocks when approaching the couple to ask them to stop.
The reporting deputy said video surveillance from the hot springs showed Klein and Miller engaging in what appeared to be sexual intercourse and that more than once, Klein was visibly not wearing swimsuit bottoms.
The deputy said several children swimming or floating on inflatable toys could be seen in the video within feet of Klein and Miller.
Court documents state that when the couple was interviewed, Miller claimed they were “stretching,” while Klein said they were “dry humping.”
Both were arrested and taken to the Gallatin County Detention Center.
