Man Fined For Drugging Woman

An Australian man was fined $3,000 for using ecstasy to spike the drink of an unsuspecting young woman in a Melbourne bar. After consuming the spiked drink, the woman reported a jaw ache, difficulty opening her mouth, a racing heart, sleeplessness and could not work due to illness and shaking. The 33-year old man charged with disgraceful conduct and introducing a drug into the body of another person told an Australian court that he “felt sorry for the woman as (he) believed that she was not having fun and felt (he) was doing her a favor by slipping the tablet into her cocktail.”
