Man jailed for putting semen in coworker’s food, water
A man has been sentenced to two and a half years in jail for repeatedly putting his own semen in a female coworker’s food, water and belongings.
Stevens Millancastro, 30, faces several battery and assault charges, as per an Oct. 13 release from the Orange County District Attorney’s office in California, United States.
The criminal worked with the victim from 2014 to 2017, during which he ejaculated several times in the coworker’s water bottles and a jar of honey, as well as spread his semen on her desk mouse and keyboard.
The victim consumed the honey for a period of time, not knowing of Millancastro’s crime. She also noticed that for three incidents, her water bottles were cloudy. She threw away each bottle every time.
After noticing the cloudiness of the third and last bottle, however, she also reported it to her supervisor. A security camera was then set up in her office.
“The next day, she touched her computer mouse which was smeared with semen. Millancastro was seen on the surveillance footage entering her office prior to this incident,” according to the D.A.’s office.
The victim then filed a report with the La Palma police department, which investigated the incidents and arrested Millancastro.
Millancastro was convicted on Sept. 21 for three misdemeanor counts of assault and two misdemeanor counts of battery while he received his sentencing on Oct. 13. Judge Kathleen Roberts, exercising her judicial discretion, has also required Millancastro to register as a sex offender.
“Today’s sentence was the maximum allowed under the law,” said D.A. Spitzer. “Judge Roberts’ imposition of the maximum possible sentence and the requirement for him to register as a sex offender is a recognition of the trauma inflicted on an innocent woman who was simply trying to do her job in the workplace.” JB
