Couple convicted of sex on beach appeal

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates Michelle Palmer and Vince Acors were sentenced Thursday to three months in prison, a fine of $272 and deportation from Dubai. The two were detained in July and charged with engaging in sex outside of marriage, drunkenness and public indecency.
