Man who slipped abortifacient into girlfriend’s drink is sentenced to 22 years
It is an extremely encouraging trend that judges are meting out serious sentences to men who slip abortifacients into their girlfriends’ drinks in an attempt to abort a child they do not want.
As reported in August, Manishkumar Patel was convicted of attempted first-degree intentional homicide of an unborn child. His girlfriend, Darshana Patel [no relation], was suspicious and did not drink the smoothie that was laced with RU-486. However she miscarried weeks later.
Tuesday, Outagamie County Judge John Des Jardins sentenced the 45-year-old Patel to 22 years in prison. Judge Des Jardins “also sentenced Patel to four years of extended supervision,” the Appleton Post-Crescent newspaper’s Chris Mueller reported.
