Ohio Teen That Drugged Missionaries Gets 30 Days

FINDLAY, OHIO -- An Ohio teen that spiked cupcakes with a sedative, making 17 people ill at an LDS missionary luncheon, was sentenced to 30 days in a juvenile detention center on Thursday. Judge Stephen Rule ordered Joseph Cordell, 15, to serve the 30 day sentence in the Wood County juvenile detention center starting immediately.

Cordell plead guilty to the reduced charge of inducing panic for the June 22nd incident. Cordell attended the luncheon at an LDS chapel in Perrysburg, Ohio, near Toledo, with his stepmother and sister, and put Ambien tablets in cupcakes after an argument with his sister, hoping that she would be blamed for the prank.

Although 17 people were taken to area hospitals complaining of nausea and lightheadedness, none were admitted an no one was injured.
