SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — A California man convicted of ejaculating into a co-worker's water bottle has been ordered to pay the woman more than $27,000.
The Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/pLwNXB ) says a judge on Monday ordered Michael Kevin Lallana to pay the woman for loss of wages, therapy and medical expenses. Lallana was convicted earlier this year of two misdemeanor counts of battery.
Prosecutors say Lallana deposited his semen twice last year in the water bottle of a co-worker at Northwestern Mutual Mortgage Co. in Newport Beach.
The woman drank from the bottle both times, throwing the first one away after detecting a foul taste. The second time she sent the bottle to a lab for testing.
Lallana was arrested in July 2010 and his DNA was later matched to the water bottle.
