Student sentenced to vomit cleanup

Wednesday, July 27, 2005; Posted: 10:05 a.m. EDT (14:05 GMT)


OLATHE, Kansas (AP) -- A high school student convicted of battery for vomiting on his Spanish teacher has been ordered to spend the next four months cleaning up after people who throw up in police cars.

Johnson County Magistrate Judge Michael Farley said during the sentencing Tuesday that he considered the boy's actions "an assault upon the dignity of all teachers."

The teen, now 17, vomited on teacher David Young as he turned in his textbook on the last day of classes at Olathe Northwest High School. His attorney, Brian Costello, said the student vomited because he was nervous about his final exams.

But two other students testified that the teen said he threw up intentionally. One girl said he told her in advance that he planned to throw up on Young on the last day of school. The girl wasn't in class when the teen threw up, but she testified that the boy later told her, "You missed it. I did it."

Young said the student, who was failing his class, made no effort to avoid throwing up on him. "I was just sort of stunned," he said.

--------------------

I guess the judge made the punishment fit the crime.....

Do people throw up a lot in police vehicles?

While I think this is totally cool and he got what he deserved, can't this be considered cruel and unusual punishment?

If I had to venture a guess, I would say "Yes."

Unusal I could see, but cruel? It's not like the judge is making him clean it with his tongue.

Why? Isn't this something that custodial workers do all the time? If it is a common task for a member of a normal occupation that is protected by OSHA standards, how can it be cruel and unusual?

Hey, for some, it wouldn't even be punishment.

Although, I suspect that police car vomit is grosser than most.

Just trying to imagine the stomach contents of a "drunk skank hooker" does make me shudder.

Is it more cruel and unusual to the person that NORMALLY cleans it out of the car? I'm guessing the officer who drives it.

I don't know. It just seems that in this bullshit era, he could argue that he needs a hazmat suit and it's "dangerous" work. I don't personally think this is the case, but I'm suprised it's leagal these days.
