Sex With Corpse Earns Lab Technician Prison Time

Tuesday, a man who was caught having sex with a corpse was sentenced to seven years in prison. However, Anthony Merino may get out earlier and receive 'time already served' as his punishment.
Hackensack, NY - The former lab technician who had worked at the Holy Name Hospital in Teaneck, New Jersey, was sentenced to seven years in prison, Tuesday after being found guilty of having sex with a corpse in 2007. Anthony Merino, 25, told the court that he sexually penetrating the corpse of a 92-year-old woman. A hospital guard had caught him in the act.
Under a complicated plea deal, Merino may be able to get a reduced sentence next month, which could mean his punishment will only be 'time already served'. He has been in jail since his arrest in October of 2007.
Part of the plea agreement is that he seeks psychological treatment, according to separate reports from two psychiatrists.
