When it comes to horrible (and horribly trashy) conduct, it’s tough to top microwaving your baby. In a room at a La Quinta motel.
But you can certainly supplement it with additional misbehavior. From the Houston Chronicle:
A jury should not hear an allegation about sex in an interrogation room that occurred after the arrest of a man accused of burning his 2-month-old daughter in a microwave oven, a defense attorney argued Monday.
Prosecutors say witnesses saw Joshua Mauldin, 20, of Warren, Ark., have sex with his wife in an interrogation room at the Galveston County Jail several days after he is accused of placing his daughter in a microwave oven for 10 to 20 seconds on May 10.
Keep in mind, however, that this is a mere allegation:
[Defense attorney Sam Cammack III] denied that the sex act occurred and said a DNA test of the chair in the interrogation room tested positive for someone other than Mauldin or his wife.
ICK — but that must be one comfy chair. Time to cover it in plastic, just like grandma used to do.
P.S. If the allegation is true, it wouldn’t be the first time people have gotten busy in a courthouse. As chronicled in these pages, witness rooms and courthouse showers have also hosted assignations.
