Dominos Pizza employees Kristy and Michael charged and released
The two Dominos Pizza employees, Kristy Lynn Hammonds and Michael Setzer, were finally caught after evading the law, and have now both been charged with contaminating food to be distributed to the public.
This is the same charge that would be issued to people who taint Halloween candy.
Kristy and Michael were fired after the video of them laughing and playing around with food meant to go on sandwiches appeared on YouTube. A spokesperson for Dominos has also issued an apology to customers, but according to some of the comments on the YouTube video, people are just not buying it.
There is other evidence that the video posted a few days ago, was not the pair's first video, and there are actually four others of them contaminating food, and one where Michael wipes his backside with a sponge and then uses it to clean the pans.
Michael Setzer appears to have no previous criminal record.
Setzer posted bond around 6 p.m. Wednesday and he said, "no comment," as he left jail.
However his partner in crime, Kristy Lynn Hammonds, 31, has a previous record of possession of stolen property, breaking into a vending machine, and sexual battery and she is on the sex offender's registry in North Carolina.
Hammonds mother told news cameras:
she feels "very bad for the company, of course, because I know there's going to be a lot of people who aren't going to want to eat there."
Hammonds is expected to post bond this morning, and her mother says that she feels 'very remorseful, stupid and embarrassed' about the whole thing.
The Dominos Pizza shop in North Carolina where this took place is back open today.
If the two are convicted, they could face anywhere from four months to a year in jail.
