is a saying my wife has used from time to time. It pretty well sums up my feelings about this story. How is the sentence comeuppance for the husband? He only gets fined if he does it again. The reporter either has an odd sense of crime and punishment or wrote this story incorrectly.
FELDKIRCH, Austria - A jealous husband who spiked his wife's food and drinks with sedatives to keep her away from her lover received his comeuppance from an Austrian court Wednesday.
A court in the western province of Vorarlberg found the 47-year old man guilty of "coercion" and sentenced him to a $540 fine should he repeat the offense.
The trick worked twice, said the Austria Press Agency, with the woman sleeping through the evening instead of meeting her lover after her husband dissolved sleeping pills in her wine. But she pressed charges after finding a tablet concealed in bread.
Neither the news agency nor the court identified the couple, in keeping with Austrian practice.
