A University of Wisconsin Marathon County professor suffered a bout of sickness after eating cookies presented by a student.
The student, 37-years-old, is facing up to a $10,000 fine and a 42-month prison sentence following the charge of placing a foreign object in food. She had placed a plate of cookies, which had been laced with half of a box of laxatives, outisde the professor's office December 18, 2009. The cookies were found prior to handing out her Bacteriology 101 class. According to the professor, she only ate one of the cookies before a student reached her by phone and warned her that the cookies may have been compromised.
Confessing to her unpopularity among students, the teacher noted that she had intended on leaving the area for southern California, but remained in Wausau while her contract bound her to Wisconsin.
The preliminary hearings for the trial of the student are expected to begin July 6, 2010.
