Snohomish barista admits to lewd behavior

EVERETT -- A Snohomish woman has admitted to engaging in lewd behavior while serving coffee drinks at one of the three bikini espresso stands she owns along Highway 99.
Carmela Panico pleaded guilty in October to lewd conduct, a misdemeanor. She was sentenced to three months in jail. All of her jail time was suspended, provided she doesn't commit any new crimes or violate any conditions of her probation. She also was fined $755.
Panico is listed as the owner of Java Juggs Incorporated, which consists of three bikini baristas stands. Two drive-through coffee huts are located in unincorporated south Everett and the third is in the city of Edmonds.
Several of her employees also were charged with misdemeanors in connection with the stands.
Edmonds police began investigating Panico's stands in October 2010 after receiving numerous complaints about lewd behavior. Investigators used a surveillance camera to record what was going on at the stands. The videos showed a range of illegal behavior, according to court papers.
Panico does not have a license with the county to operate an adult entertainment business, county officials said this week.
