Kory McFarren gets Probation and Jail
Posted by shadmia on July 31, 2008
Kory McFarren, 37, became famous when he called the police for help in removing his 35-year-old girlfriend, Pam Babcock, from their toilet seat. She had spent the past two years in the bathroom and had become so firmly attached to the toilet seat that she had to be taken to the hospital with the seat stuck to her buttocks. See the entire story here.
Kory McFarren of Ness City, Kansas was eventually charged with the mistreatment of a dependent adult. Kory pleaded no contest to the charge and was found guilty by the Ness County district magistrate. He was sentenced to six months in jail but after a plea for leniency by his girlfriend, Pam Babcock, the judge granted him six months probation instead.
According to Ness County Attorney Craig Crosswhite Pam Babcock petitioned the judge on behalf of her boyfriend because “She didn’t believe that her circumstances were his fault.” She is now under the protection of a guardian who was appointed through the legal department at the hospital where she received treatment.
However, Kory McFarren does get jail time for another unrelated incident. Shortly after the incident with his girlfriend and the toilet seat, Kory was arrested on charges of lewd and lascivious behavior.
Kory McFarren was arrested after allegedly exposing himself to a minor. He spent the night in jail before being bonded out, said Ness County Sheriff Bryan Whipple. It was a neighbor who filed the complaint after calling the police, saying that McFarren exposed himself to her teenage daughter and some friends.
“This has been going on for a long period of time,” the neighbor said. “While we were using our pool or hot tub, he would stand in his window and watch and play with himself. It has become much worse lately.”
According to the woman, this was not the first time that she had called the police. Her family even had built up a pile of firewood to obstruct McFarren’s view of the pool area. However, this time when the police showed up, they caught McFarren exposing himself. He was arrested but made bail and returned home the next day.
The neighbor was frustrated when she saw that McFarren had been released so quickly.“I have a daughter who is home after school,” she said. “We don’t know what is going to happen.” She said her children long have had after-school instructions to come inside, lock the doors and call the police if McFarren comes on their property.
In this matter, which was heard at the same time as the “Toilet Case”, the judge did give Kory McFarren jail time. He was sentenced to six months.
