WINONA, Minn. (AP) — A Minnesota woman must register as a predatory offender after pleading guilty in a case where she was accused of yanking on a man’s genitals hard enough for him to need stitches.

Fifty-five-year-old Sheila Mae Baker was sentenced Thursday to five years on probation. She entered an Alford plea in November to a charge of third-degree assault. The plea means she admitted no wrongdoing but acknowledged a jury would likely convict her.

A message left at Baker’s home Saturday was not immediately returned.

Court documents say Baker told officers the man “must have done it to himself.” She previously told the Winona Daily News she hit the man in the genitals in self-defense.

Police responding to the 2009 domestic-disturbance call found the man in a T-shirt and bloody underwear.

    What do you think would of happened to the attacker if it were a man who did this to a women? Any ideas? I highly doubt he would of gotten just probation..He WOULD be in jail right now,and you know it.You would not want to know what i would of done to her if it was my genitals that were ripped.

    Right on Krocko – and every women’s “We’re all victims” group would be lining up at the courthouse to burn the guy in effigy. I suspect the judge have her probation because he had a very real fear that she would retaliate. I would give anything to hear the victim impact statement in this case.

    right on krocko and seavy, maybe she offered a sexual favor to the judge, lol!!

    “Agreement” She admits no wrongdoing but is charged with 3rd degree assault and register as a sex offender….lmao! Some needs to tell her PA to go back to law school.

  6. Victim Du Jour says:

    It’s like Jim Crow laws, where men get punished more severely than women.

    You can audit DWI punishment too and see how women get less prison for even fatal DWI accidents.

    14th amendment says it voids the law when people get punished differently.

  7. Victim Du Jour says:

    Sharai laws work the same way too, they give men an unfair advantage over women and automatically side with men in the court system.

    Only in the USA it’s polar opposite fascism favoring women.

    How often does this happen guys? Let’s put this all in perspective.

  9. jay white bear lake says:

    i feel sorry for this guy but she shouldnt have to register as an offender! that does not make any sense.

    1. Victim Du Jour says:

      Men have been ordered to register as a sex offender for peeing. So why act so surprised?

    Rip a guys sack and get 5 years probation? Yet if chat online with a minor you get 10 years prison, plus 5 years probation.
    Must be better to be a woman, and grab them where it hurts.
    If I was dating her, I’d love to know she was a sex offender.
