Back in September, we reported on a sour incident that happened at hardware store where a 34-year-old man was caught ejaculating into the coffee cup of a coworker.
John R. Lind was charged with two counts of criminal sexual conduct. However, the judge dismissed the charges against splooge suspect because “no current sex law covered this type of incident.”
Instead, he was charged with indecent exposure.
That verdict obviously didn’t sit well with the victim, Pat Maahs, so she’s enlisting the help of lawmakers to make sure something like this doesn’t happen again.
Rep. Debra Hilstrom is up to the challenge and is focused on changing the law, in addition to changing the language of what constitutes fifth-degree criminal sexual conduct.
The bill unanimously passed the Public Safety Committee and will now head to the House floor. If all goes well, any future victims of similar crimes will be able to bring felony charges against the offender.
If said offender is then convicted, that person will have to register as a predatory offender.
