Pervert Gets Two Years In Prison For Putting His Semen In Yogurt Samples Given To Female Shoppers

The grocery clerk who placed his semen in yogurt samples he gave to female shoppers at a New Mexico supermarket was sentenced yesterday to two years in prison.

While the repulsive crime might seem to merit harsher punishment, federal sentencing guidelines spared Anthony Garcia, 32, a lengthier term since he was considered a first-time offender (though he had been involved in a series of other instances of public indecency and is currently facing a state charge of having criminal sexual contact with a child under age 13).

Garcia, pictured in the above mug shot, pleaded guilty last year to adulterating a yogurt sample he gave to a 29-year-old customer at the Sunflower Market in Albuquerque. The victim told police that the yogurt was “gross and disgusting” and tasted like semen.

Investigators believe that Garcia gave similarly tainted samples to at least four other women, three of whom ingested the yogurt. In a sentencing motion, a federal prosecutor noted that Garcia “tricked his victim into placing his semen into her mouth,” since he “wanted to be in a position to witness the victim consume his bodily fluid.”

Upon his release from Bureau of Prisons custody, Garcia will be placed on probation for three years.

Garcia’s two-year sentence matches the prison term given last month to Joseph Bartorillo, 60, who admitted injecting his semen into the yogurt containers of two female coworkers at a Procter & Gamble plant in Pennsylvania.
