Man Involved In Md. Semen Attacks Gets Probation

ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) — A Maryland man who pleaded guilty to squirting semen from a bottle onto two female shoppers will spend three years on probation.

A judge sentenced Michael Wayne Edwards Jr. to three years in prison on Thursday but suspended the sentence and placed Edwards on probation. That means he will not serve any more time in jail unless he violates his probation. Edwards pleaded guilty in November to two counts of second-degree assault.

His lawyer, Barry Helfand, said Edwards is a law-abiding and churchgoing member of the community and that he will be seeing a therapist while on probation. Helfand said a doctor told the court that Edwards’ actions were the result of misplaced anger after breaking up with a girlfriend.
