ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) – A New Mexico grocery store worker has pleaded guilty to charges that he handed out a semen-tainted yogurt sample at an Albuquerque market.

Anthony Garcia faced charges of adulterating food with semen and making false statements to federal investigators during a criminal investigation. He made the plea Thursday in federal court in Albuquerque.

Garcia is accused of handing out the yogurt sample at a Sunflower Market in Albuquerque in January. Police say the 32-year-old man was linked to the yogurt through DNA samples.

Under the terms of his plea agreement, Garcia faces up to three years of imprisonment to be followed by three years of supervised release.

Sentencing has not been scheduled.

    I hope he gets active jail time so he can get a taste of his own medicine.
