PITTSBURGH (AP) - A man who botched the castration of a transgendered woman will spend the next three years on probation. "I have no intention of doing this again to animals or humans," Douglas Lenhart, 49, told Allegheny County Judge John Zottola on Monday. "I'm completely out of this. Completely done." Zottola sentenced Lenhart to jail time he had already served and will let him serve his probation in Kansas City, Kan., where he now lives.

In July, Lenhart acknowledged trying to castrate Catherine Watson, 46. Watson was born with nonfunctioning male genitals and has lived as a woman since age 9, Lenhart's defense attorney James Wymard said.

Lenhart pleaded guilty to aggravated assault and practicing medicine without a license.

Lenhart had said Watson was "desperate" to find someone to perform the surgery and he thought he could do it because of his experience castrating animals on a farm.

Maybe it's just me or I don't do enough reading of strange articles from other areas of the country, but I fear that W. PA is going to become famous for "strange sex stories." Besides the botched castration, there was the death due to castration by the transsexual wife, and the little old fart dressing up like a cheerleader to spy on the high school cheerleaders. Hmmmm....I'm beginning to worry.

"Must be something in the anthracite."

If it were, it would be happening at the other end of the state, and if you meant the bituminous, it would be happening all over WV too. Outside of the guy from around Charleston who won the lottery and likes to take $ 300,000+ (and leave it in his Hummer) at nudie bars while he gets drunk and is robbed, I don't hear too much of this strange stuff from WV.

"A man who botched the castration of a transgendered woman.."

Physically, thats impossible! I wish the media would get away from this "transgendered" nonsense.

These days...if you say youre a woman...you are.
