Man sentenced to 2 years for semen-tainted yogurt

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A grocery store worker accused of handing out a semen-tainted yogurt sample has been sentenced to two years in prison.

Anthony Garcia pleaded guilty in the case in October, admitting he contaminated a sample of the yogurt he was handing out at an Albuquerque Sunflower Market in January 2011. He was sentenced today.

Garcia also admitted putting some of his semen on a plastic spoon that he placed with the yogurt. The 32-year-old then approached a female customer and offered her a sample.

The woman told police that after tasting the sample, she spit on the floor several times and wiped her mouth on the garment she was wearing to get the taste out of her mouth.

Federal prosecutors called the allegations “sickening and appalling.”

Garcia had faced up to three years in prison.
