O.C. man convicted of putting semen in female co-worker's water bottle

A Fullerton man was convicted Thursday on charges stemming from two incidents in which he deposited his semen in a female co-worker’s water bottle.

An Orange County Superior Court jury in Santa Ana found Michael Kevin Lallana, 32, guilty of two misdemeanor counts of battery with sentencing enhancement allegations for committing a crime for sexual gratification. He faces up to one year in jail and registration as a sex offender at his April 22 sentencing.

Twice last year, authorities say, Lallana left semen in a water bottle on the co-worker’s desk at Northwestern Mutual Financial Network.

When the woman, who was not identified, returned to her desk and drank from the bottle the first time, she fell ill and threw the bottle away. The second time, several months later, she sent the water bottle to a private laboratory for testing. When the results came back, she contacted Orange police, who arrested Lallana.

Subsequent DNA testing matched him to the bottle’s contents.

Only in California.

What a sick excuse for a man. Trying to control a woman like that is just gross. No room in society for a person like that.

Dude...what a SCUMBAG.

Remove this idiot's ability to MAKE the "bodily fluid" in question, and he will no longer be a threat! I am sure his victim would agree to that! Sex offender registration won't stop this sicko!

I don't think it's fair to knock down the guy in this case since we don't know all the facts!

I'm sorry Arnold. When is it acceptable social behavior to ejaculate into a female co-worker's water bottle?

How did he deliver the substance into the bottle?

This sick Bas%!#^ should have been charged with a felony!
