A Fullerton, CA man, who was convicted of putting his semen into the water bottle of a female co-worker, was ordered to pay over $27,000 in restitution on Monday.
Michael Kevin Lallana, 32, who had already been sentenced to 180 days in jail for twice tainting his co-worker's drinking water, was also ordered to pay for the victim's therapy and loss of wages after she left her place of employment due to the incidents.
Attorneys prosecuting the case told the story of Lallana intentionally discharging into the victims water bottle on two separate occasions at their mutual place of employment, Northwestern Mutual Financial Network.
The first incident occurred on Jan. 14, 2010, when the woman tasted something odd in her water and noticed something floating in the bottle. The same thing happened four months later. After the second incident, she took the bottle to a laboratory, where it was determined that the foreign substance in the water was semen.
Police conducted an investigation of the victim's co-workers and, eventually, Lallana confessed to the offense. It was later determined, via DNA testing, that the semen was, indeed his.
"The idea that I had Mr. Lallana's semen in my mouth, without my knowing, against my will, for his sexual pleasure, sickens me," the victim said during a court statement in February. "What I experienced was not rape, but I feel it was a form of rape. I ultimately experienced sexually inflicted harm without my consent."
In addition to the jail time and restitution, Lallana was also ordered to register as a sex offender.
