Three men who shocked a mentally disabled co-worker with an electronic dog collar have been convicted of misdemeanor assault.
James O'Neal testified in General District Court that a fellow employee of MW Manufacturers, Ricky L. Moore, told him the collar -- that emits a shock when a button is pressed by remote-control -- was a lie-detector test. O'Neal put it around his leg, and Moore asked him some questions before pushing the button emitting a shock. O'Neal wasn't injured.
Wednesday, the judge fined Moore, Kevin S. Smith and Charles G. English $100 each and imposed 10-day suspended jail sentences. The men resigned from the company.
