Yova Kana Shaday, a convicted serial child molester, has a seemingly odd request. As a matter of fact, the request is so rare, he’s making headlines for the personal plea he’s submitted to Federal Judge Edward Korman.
According to the New York Daily News, Shaday wants to leave prison to visit a sperm bank. Apparently, the 69-year-old Queens Correctional Facility inmate wants to be given the chance to procreate because his biological clock is ticking. In a detailed request letter filed in Brooklyn Federal Court, Shaday argues that his incarceration is “robbing” him of his “last opportunity to be fruitful and multiply.” He is reportedly praying the court will take his plea seriously and consider releasing him for this purpose.
“I’m afraid that if I’m incarcerated (5-10) years I will be released too late to ever (donate sperm) again and join a sperm bank,” Shaday reportedly wrote.
“Pls (sic) your honor I pray the court to consider this very serious truth in releasing me,” Saday begged like a blubbering idiot in his note. “The gravity of this extenuating circumstance is in your hands. May your god lead you to be fruitful and multiply, please.”
At the end of the letter, he also reportedly stated that “his sperm donation was intended for an unnamed specific receiver.” The shocking request has sparked a heated debate. An overwhelming number of social media users are outraged that Shaday would even make such a request given the reason he’s behind bars. Of course, most readers adamantly insist the request should be denied.
Shaday is currently awaiting trial for failing to register as a sex offender in New York. Then to make matters worse, he was reportedly living under a fake alias. He was caught when he reported his bike stolen to NYPD. Authorities flagged his name and discovered his deceitful actions. If convicted, he faces a maximum of 10 years behind bars.
He reportedly has a lengthy criminal history consisting of several lewd acts with minors. Back in 2005, Shaday pled guilty to lewd acts with a 14-year-old in California. He was sentenced to three years behind bars. After he was released, he had yet another run-in with a minor. He pled guilty to molestation of a child under the age of 18. For that charge, he was sentenced to another six months in jail.
Of course, the judge has denied Shaday’s outrageous request.
“Defendant’s notice to be released denied,” the judge finally said.
