SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A Utah woman who nearly died after run unknowingly drinking iced tea mixed with chemicals spoke publicly for the first time Friday, saying she hopes the incident is a wake-up call for restaurants.
Grammy-winning US singer Cee Lo Green pleaded no contest Friday to a charge of giving a woman ecstasy before going back to her hotel, but insisted he was innocent. A judge sentenced Green to three years probation, 360 hours of community service, 52 Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous classes and ordered him to register as a controlled substance offender. Green was accused of giving ecstasy to a 33-year-old woman without her knowledge while dining at a Los Angeles restaurant in July, 2012 before returning to the woman's hotel. Green changed his plea to no contest under a rule that lets him maintain his innocence but put the case behind him, said his lawyer Blair Berk.
