Yikes! Makes you think twice about getting coffee from the break room, huh?

A Virginia woman who admitted putting cleaning products in the coffee maker at her workplace for months was sentenced to prison Thursday.
Mayda E. Rivera-Juarez, 33, who was charged with one count of adulteration of food with intent to injure or kill for the 2016 incident, was sentenced to three years and six months in prison, the Commonwealth Attorney’s Office in Leesburg said in a news release.
Rivera-Juarez admitted to pouring Windex and Ajax dish soap into the coffee maker’s water reservoir at Jas Forwarding Worldwide Inc., where she worked, WUSA reported. She tampered with the coffeemaker from January 2016 through October 2016, when she was caught in the act on surveillance video after employees suspected the office coffee was making them sick. She was immediately fired.
According to officials, she admitted to the crime, stating that she wanted to make her supervisor ill. She also admitted to squirting Ajax dish soap into her boss’s coffee mug as well.
The Virginia woman will spend her sentence at the Virginia Department of Corrections. After being released, she will also have to serve three years of “post-release supervision.”
