A jury on Thursday convicted a Fullerton man for ejaculating into his coworker's water bottle while they worked in Newport Beach, and a second time later when they worked in Orange. Michael Kevin Lallana, 32, was convicted of two misdemeanor counts of battery with an enhancement for doing it for sexual gratification and faces up to a year in jail and having to register as a sex offender at his sentencing. When Lallana worked at Northwestern Mutual Financial Network in Newport Beach in January 2010, he took his coworker's water bottle off her desk when she wasn't there.

A Fullerton man convicted of ejaculating into a female co-worker's water bottle on two occasions — one of which was in Newport Beach — has been ordered to pay the victim $27,411 in restitution fees.

A jury convicted Michael Kevin Lallana, 34, of Fullerton of two misdemeanor counts of battery in February 2011, but his attorney, E. Thomas Dunn, said that because no force was used, Lallana didn't batter the woman. "What Michael Lallana did was morally disgusting … but not battery," Dunn said.

Just off Trabuco Canyon Road near the fire station, the wood-porched Trabuco Canyon General Store is an old-fashioned place that sells, among other things, chicken feed. And it smells like it.  There, longtime canyon denizens followed the search for two Costa Mesa hikers who had been missing since Sunday from a tiny TV mounted from the ceiling.  Russ Thompson, 75, sat perched in a busted, old chair tucked among snacks and supplies.  He said his guesses about the fate of Kyndall Jack, 18, and Nicolas Cendoya, 19, were "totally wrong.
