FL Woman Offers Sex for 2 Cheeseburgers Off Dollar Menu
McDonald's is no longer the home of the Big Mac. No, it's now a bona fide house of prostitution.
Florida resident Christine Baker was arrested on Friday by an undercover detective with the Manatee County Sheriff's Office. She allegedly offered the man sex in exchange for two double cheeseburgers off of McDonald's dollar menu.
Sadly, the sex for cheeseburgers incident is in no way related to January's story about a woman offering sex in exchange for McNuggets. Yes, two different women decided McDonald's food is a good substitute for cash money.
Granted, Christine Baker eventually did ask for money -- but only after she agreed to sex for cheeseburgers. Once the undercover officer purchased the food, she suggested that he give her a tip, reports The Smoking Gun. He gave her $60 but she only kept $40.
Though Baker has been charged with prostitution, the Bradenton Herald reports that she was released on Saturday morning. It's unknown whether she was released on bond or on her own recognizance, but she likely has a court date set for some point in the next few months.
If this is her first offense, then she would have been charged with a second degree misdemeanor. Under Florida law, such crimes can be punished with no more than 60 days in jail and a $500 fine. But chances are Christine Baker won't receive the maximum sentence.
Offering sex for cheeseburgers, while technically illegal, isn't exactly the worst of crimes. Florida would be better off housing a violent criminal over a desperate woman.
