Adulteration by Bodily Fluid
There has been a story in the news lately of a man who ejaculated in a co-worker’s coffee. He was originally charged with felony sexual assault, but that charge was dismissed because the statute didn’t mention bodily fluids and there was no physical contact between the defendant and victim. He has since been charged and pled guilty to misdemeanor indecent exposure.
In response to this, the Minnesota Legislature is currently working on passing a new misdemeanor criminal statute, “adulteration by bodily fluid.” See https://www.revisor.mn.gov/bills/text.php?number=HF0889&version=latest&session=89&session_number=0&session_year=2015. This would criminalize the act of intentionally adding bodily fluids to a substance for human consumption. This can become a felony if one ingests the bodily fluid, the adulteration is done for sexual gratification, or if the victim is a child.
The bill is expected to pass this session.
