Semen clerk will plead guilty

Back in February we told you about the New Mexico supermarket employee who was arrested for handing out a yogurt sample, mixed with his semen to a shopper.

Anthony Garcia, 32, will plead guilty to federal charges,
a two-count felony indictment charging him with adulterating food and lying to federal investigators.

Garcia, pictured in the above photo, pleaded not guilty to both counts at his July 15 arraignment.
But he really has his hands full now, (so to speak) and he is being held without bail, and faces a maximum of five years in prison on the false statements count and a maximum of three years for adulterating the yogurt.

For those who may not remember, the female victim, 29, said that she was shopping with her daughter at the Sunflower Farmers Market on January 25 when a “pushy” Garcia approached her offering the yogurt sample.
After swallowing the yogurt, the woman immediately thought the sample tasted “gross and disgusting.” And, as the police reported, she “said it tasted like ‘semen.’”

In a handwritten statement, the woman recalled, “I spit it out on the floor many times cuz I was upset.” She also recalled that a supermarket manager told her the sample "was a Greek yoghurt. People love it has lot of protein on it.”

No kidding...
