Elderly man asks for sex as payment for mowing lawnBy Mason White 2:25 PM January 12, 2014

An elderly man found a way to get sex for free.
He offered a woman to mow her lawn in exchange for sex.
The woman laughed it off thinking that the elderly man was joking.
The two agreed that the elderly man would cut the grass the next day.
When Daniel Farrington, 70, of England, was done mowing the lawn, the woman tried to give him £10 (about $16.50) for the job, but he refused to take the money.
“I told you what I want in exchange for doing your lawn. I’ve been thinking about it all night, come on,” Farrington told the woman.
He then grabbed the woman’s arms and said: “We had an agreement, it’s not going to take long.”
Liverpool Crown Court heard that Farrington tried to force himself onto the woman before she was able to get away and call for help.
Farrington was arrested shortly thereafter.
Farrington, who worked for the same employer for 30 years, sat quietly while awaiting his sentence.
His two adult sons and their families were also present.
Judge Brian Lewis said that someone of his age and background should never have gotten into this situation.
Farrington was sentenced to two years in prison.
