Sean A. Kobin, of Mequon, Wis., is a registered sex offender. He earned that status after being convicted last year of urging a 13-year-old girl to drink bleach. He served a year in prison and is now on probation.

Friday, Kobin was back in jail on suspicion of reckless endangerment. Police say he gave a 33-year-old woman some concentrated drain cleaner. She took a couple gulps and started vomiting. Kobin videotaped her agony.

Hello. We haven't read a story this sick in a long time. From the Milwaukee Journal:
The woman, who was not identified, was at St. Michael Hospital, according to one of the victim's co-workers. Police said she might die.

Detectives are studying a videotape that shows the woman drinking the solution and then throwing up. Police said the tape shows at least three other women drinking solutions and becoming ill ...

Kobin met the victim at Fantasy Gifts, an adult store at 8340 W. Brown Deer Road, where she worked, police said. At 10 a.m. Tuesday morning, Kobin and the woman - described by police as "acquaintances" - were in a parking lot. Kobin gave her $20 to drink the solution, police sources said.

Before drinking it, the woman asked Kobin whether it would hurt her and he said it wouldn't, sources said.

After the woman became violently ill, Kobin called 911, police said. She was rushed to the hospital, and he was arrested.
For what it's worth, Kobin has reportedly been a model parolee since his release from prison in April, meeting weekly with a probation officer.

This scared me a whole lot when I first heard about all this. I went to high school with him for a year or so and he tried to get me to do stuff over the phone because he wanted to know how far down my throw I could put something. This guy is a COMPLETE CREEP!!!
