A sick pervert who smeared his semen on a co-worker's computer keyboard and mouse, in her honey jar and in half-consumed bottles of water and lotion on her desk has been jailed.
Stevens Millancastro, 30, from California, US, was sentenced on Tuesday, October 13, to two-and-a-half years in prison and he must also register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
He was convicted last month of two counts of battery and three counts of assault by Orange County Superior Court Judge Kathleen Roberts, who decided the case without a jury.
Judge Roberts was initially going to sentence the defendant to two years in jail plus five years of probation, but Millancastro rejected probation, so the judge added the extra six months to his sentence. Millancastro was given credit for already serving 74 days behind bars.
Explaining why she was handing out the maximum punishment, Roberts said: "This was a sexually motivated act… It is emotionally devastating to the victim."
Judge Roberts pointed out that the defendant "harassed her for four years, staring at her, making her feel uncomfortable at work to the point she altered her clothing".
The woman finally complained informally three times and then ultimately made a formal complaint, Judge Roberts said.
The judge added: "When she finally made the formal complaint the defendant was forced to undergo sexual harassment training.

"He chose to ejaculate into her items and that was after sexual harassment training.''
The judge said his "sexual revenge'' was a "sophisticated scheme to get her to ingest his semen after she reported him".
Michael Morrison of the Orange County Public Defender's Office disputed that his client committed his crimes out of sexual gratification, saying it was only for revenge.
Deputy District Attorney Laila Nikaien argued that the defendant was sexually aroused by the victim eating and drinking his semen.

Ms Nikaien said: "He is a deviant… It's a form of having power over the victim, of humiliating them.
"That's what a sex offender does. That's what the defendant did… He did it once and got his jollies off and wanted to keep doing it.''
The judge noted there were eight separate acts in late 2016 and early 2017 and said she took into consideration the sexual harassment, though it was not criminal.
Millancastro and the woman, whose name was not publicly revealed, had worked together since 2014, according to Nikaien, who said the defendant "actually trained the victim".

The woman testified that Millancastro started asking her out via an instant messaging system at work.
"He mentioned something about picking me up. I had no clue what he was talking about," she testified. "He was basically asking me out to the movies. I said, no, I have a boyfriend."
"Did he keep asking?" Nikaien asked. "Yes,'" the victim testified. "He would stare at me all day … in an uncomfortable way, a crazy way."
Nikaien said the defendant "would check her out from head to toe. He would stare at her when she walked to a printer… when she walked to a filing cabinet near her desk… It got so bad… she would wear a sweater around her waist… to prevent him from looking at her.''
Ultimately, she "made an informal complaint to her boss," the prosecutor said. "He was told to stop, but he kept staring at her. To the point, about a month later… the victim filed a formal complaint with HR for the defendant incessantly staring at her."
A short time later in November 2016, she noticed a half-consumed bottle of water she had left on her desk looked "cloudy" and threw it away, Nikaien said.
"A week after that, she left another half drunken bottle of water open on her desk and when she comes back to work again the next day, the water is cloudy and she's suspicious so she throws it away," Nikaien said. "A week later she finds another bottle of half-drunken water on her desk and this time she opens it up."
The woman's "boss then had a team set up a surveillance camera next to the victim's desk," and it captured the defendant after hours on January 12, 2017, as he "grabbed some tissues and walked over to the bathroom… " the prosecutor said.
"He masturbates to arousal, he ejaculates… then what we see next on surveillance is he's holding up the crumpled tissue walking right to the victim's desk."
