(Scroll down for video) A man was cleared of any wrongdoing after he placed his sperm in a woman’s coffee.
Blaine Police said that 34-year-old John Robert Lind, was seen by his coworker standing in front of her desk before she found his sperm in her coffee.
The victim, who was identified as Pat Maahs, told investigators that she suspected that Lind placed bodily fluids into her coffee several times, as her coffee always seemed to have a strange taste.
When questioned by police, Lind admitted that he placed sperm into his coworker’s coffee at least twice in the past 6 months.
Police charged Lind with participating in lewd or indecent conduct. Lind and the victim worked together for 14 years.
A judge dismissed the charge of sexual assault because the actions of the suspect failed to meet the legal definition of sexual assault.
Now, Maahs is working with lawmaker Debra Hilstrom, to change the law so that “if someone puts bodily fluids in other people’s food, it will count for criminal sexual conduct,” Hilstrom said.
