Just as bad as sex!

Yadina Morales

A “highly intoxicated” mother passed out while breastfeeding her 2-month-old baby, killing the child, according to police.

Law enforcement authorities say the baby was found unresponsive underneath 22-year-old Yadina Indira Morales on Saturday morning, reports the Baltimore Sun.

Just before 7 a.m. Washington County sheriff’s deputies were called to the house in Hagerstown, Md., about 70 miles northwest of Washington, D.C. The baby was pronounced dead at the Mertius Medical Center, where Morales was also examined before being booked and charged, according to the Associated Press.

Morales has been charged with manslaughter, second-degree child abuse and reckless endangerment, among other charges. Court records show Morales posted bail and was released from detention on Saturday, ABC2 reports.

The Baltimore Sun found records of a previous incident involving one of Morales’ children:

Last year, a man Morales identified as her boyfriend was charged with child abuse after another child, Morales’ then-2-year-old daughter, was brought to a hospital with fractured ribs and other injuries, according to a 2012 story in the Hagerstown Herald-Mail. Maryland online judicial records indicate Daniel Keith Edmonds ultimately registered an Alford plea — not admitting guilt but acknowledging there was sufficient evidence to find him guilty — to a lesser, second-degree assault charge.

Sex while driving!

A new online survey measures just how much actual living goes on in cars — whether it is eating, applying makeup, flirting or having sex.

As a result, according to the Harris Interactive survey conducted for a company called Scout GPS, drivers are still distracted despite all the attention paid to the risks.

The survey finds that 11% of the the 1,832 U.S. adults participating in the survey admit to “having participated in a sexual activity while driving.” Predictably, men were three times more likely to admit — boast? — that had, at 17%, compared to women, 5%. By a percentage point, those age 35 to 44 were the leading age group for acknowledging their sexual exploits in moving cars. Those 18 to 34 were next.

Some 19% say they have eaten using a fork, spoon or knife while driving, 10% have applied makeup and 9% have flirted with another driver. Those who have read a book behind the wheel represent only 4%.

While Harris is a respected polling organization and 1,832 is a lot of respondents, the results are not considered scientific. But they are interesting.

Sex while driving…not even once

Man Having Sex While Driving Pleads Guilty to 2 Deaths

By Deanne Katz, Esq. on October 3, 2012 5:47 AM

Mark Anders Chalin pled guilty to criminal vehicular homicide on Monday for killing two people when he was having sex while driving. He crossed the median and hit another car, killing the driver of the other car as well as his own passenger.

There are laws against certain kinds of distracted driving such as driving while intoxicated or texting behind the wheel. Sex seems like the kind of behavior that is so obviously distracting no one in good conscience would do it.

Chalin seems to have disagreed, although he claims he doesn’t remember what happened.

The accident happened in August 2011 when witnesses say just prior to the crash they saw Chalin’s passenger, Amber Menezes, straddling him and blocking his view, reports the San Francisco Chronicle.

Jonna Martin was driving down the road towards Chalin when he went over the median and hit her without slowing down. Martin and Menezes were both killed in the accident.

Chalin was hospitalized for 45 days for his injuries. He claims that he doesn’t remember anything between leaving a party the night of the accident and waking up in the hospital, according to The Free Press.

Vehicular homicide is a specific kind of murder where the victim is killed by a vehicle. By pleading guilty Chalin was able to get a shorter sentence than he would likely get before a jury.

A guilty plea is generally used where there is so much evidence that the defendant committed the crime that there is a significant likelihood of a guilty verdict. Instead of letting the court determine the sentence, the defendant can negotiate a punishmentwith the prosecutor. In general, the negotiated punishment is more lenient than what could happen in court.

For Chalin, that means a recommended sentence of four years in prison.

The prosecutor will recommend that sentence but a judge will make the final decision on Chalin’s punishment. His hearing is scheduled for December 10.

The Legality Of “Road Head” (Or, 13 States In Which We’ve Broken The Law By Giving A Beej)

The Legality Of "Road Head" (Or, 13 States In Which We've Broken The Law By Giving A Beej)

With a bunch of states finally getting around to banning text messaging while driving, I began to wonder what other bad-idea auto activities are illegal. Actually, the only one I really care about – or engage in – is “road head” (when the driver of a car receives oral sex, for those prudes/pedestrians out there). It’s kinda mainstream, since it’s been featured in movies like Crash and friggin’Parenthood, but I was thinking that since it is kinda dangerous, and potentially deadly, it must be moving violation. Right?

I couldn’t find any specific written laws (by state, that is) that says that road head is a no-no. But that’s actually because in so many states, regular, plain ol’ BJs are totally illegal, no matter where you’re giving or receiving them. Many states have ye olde tyme-y anti-gay rules that outlaw any sex that isn’t penis/vagina. Here are a list that I was able to put together.

Alabama (not surprising, given their laws on sex toys) Penalty = 1 year/$2,000

Florida Penalty = 60 days/$500

Idaho Penalty = 5 years to life…life!

Kansas Penalty = 6 months/$1,000, (only applies to same-sex acts)

Louisiana Penalty = 5 years/$2,000

Michigan Penalty = up to 15 years imprisonment, repeat offenders get life

Mississippi Penalty = 10 years

North Carolina Penalty = 10 years/discretionary fine

Oklahoma Penalty = 10 years (only applies to same-sex acts)

South Carolina Penalty = 5 years/$500

Texas Penalty = $500 (only applies to same-sex acts)

Utah Penalty = 6 months/$1,000

Virginia Penalty = 1-5 years

It’s good to know that of the three states (that I can remember, at least) I’ve given and received road head – Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York – I wasn’t technically breaking the law. But it is kinda dangerous to do. I haven’t done it in about a year or two, but that’s just because I don’t have a car and I haven’t dated anyone with one since then.

Column: Road head is as dangerous as drunk driving, not worth it

Posted on October 17, 2011

With everyone back from long fall break road trips, this talk could not have come at a better time.

I took a road trip to Florida this weekend, and fortunately did not witness any funny business in the passing cars. Perhaps surprisingly, I never have observed the giving or receiving of oral or any other kind of sex while on the road.

That doesn’t convince me it isn’t out there.

Of all the dumb things to do while driving, performing or receiving sexual favors is without a doubt top three. Drunk driving and texting while driving are close by.

According to an USA Today article by Chris Woodyard, a study found that 15 percent of motorists surveyed have performed sexual acts while driving.

Honestly, who in their right mind would seriously do this? No offense to your lack of judgment, but is it really worth it? I’m sure some people would say yes — the same people who will be on the road drunk driving with their knees while texting this weekend. It’s no big deal.

First of all, I would like to know how anyone can drive while actually having sex. Apparently it is done, but I genuinely do not understand how. I’m sure the most common act is oral sex, or “road head.” I suppose this is a degree less hazardous than full-on, 60 mph intercourse. Still, can someone really concentrate on anything else while in the moment?

All signs point to no.

Other than the obvious distractions, receiving oral sex, from a male perspective, has other risks. A popular story covered by Sin Chew Daily and the China Press demonstrates the dangers of a man having his joystick bitten off as a result of the impact of a car accident while his partner was performing oral sex. That totally seems worth it.

I’m sure when a couple is bored on a long drive, it comes up.

For whatever reason, it sounds appealing. The same survey mentioned in the USA Today article also found 29 percent of the respondents admitted to kissing while driving. A quick peck may be harmless, as long as the driver doesn’t turn away from the road, but making out is a different story.

Unfortunately the survey does not specify what these individuals actually do or did, but let’s hope for the best.

If you are ever in a situation like this, just say no. If you have half the intellect of a Labrador retriever, wait it out. As with drinking or texting behind the wheel, or any other unimaginable, unnecessary act, injuring or killing yourself or someone else is just not worth it. If you feel otherwise, you don’t deserve to have a license.

Stop being irresponsible for momentary satisfaction and pay attention to what you’re doing. So many people have been hurt due to gratuitous events that could have been prevented.

If it really can’t wait, pull over and stop putting other people’s lives at stake for your own pleasure.
