The Spanish daytime court show, Caso Cerrado (Case Closed), sees Cuban-American lawyer Ana Maria Polo arbitrating cases that are no stranger to ratings-worthy controversy and high levels of camp.
From moms getting it on with their adopted children to 15-year-old dads, Polo’s television courtroom has seen it all. However, one case has been getting attention way beyond its Telemundo audience for taking weird to the next level.
If the lawsuit of a woman suing a recent widow after doing the do with her husband isn’t bizarre enough, the reason why makes things even more bewildering.
A transgender escort, Jennifer, had not only the audience flabbergasted, but even Ana Maria Polo herself when she explained why she was suing a recent widow, Silvia.
Jennifer went on to explain that Silvia had hired her to get intimate with her husband Miguel and during the act, he had a heart attack and died.
Miguel and Silvia used to be Jennifer’s client when she worked at a spa and the trio built enough of a rapport that Silvia felt comfortable asking for an unusual request.
To fulfill her husband’s fantasy, Silvia told Jennifer that she wanted to gift him an intimate night with her for his 60th birthday. Jennifer initially said no, but after falling on hard times she accepted Silvia’s offer.
When the time came for the birthday gift to commence, Silvia gave Jennifer $250 upon arrival and promised another $250 after the deed had been done.
Jennifer had not revealed to the couple that she was transgender and still had male parts, but once the two were alone, Miguel said he was always aware and the two proceeded to seal the deal.
However, after the deed was done Miguel told Jennifer that she did not fulfill his fantasy and that he wanted her to be the one “on top.”
Jennifer obliged to Miguel’s request and told the shocked courtroom audience, “He liked it. He was biting the pillow and scratching the bed. He kept saying that I was his daddy.”
While Jennifer was being intimate with Silvia’s husband, he ended up having a heart attack and dying on the spot. Jennifer immediately called Silvia, but couldn’t leave the scene because she was stuck inside Miguel.
Multiple emergency services arrived at the scene and they weren’t able to get Jennifer and a now deceased Miguel “unstuck” until getting to the hospital.
If the traumatic experience of being inside a dead man for so long wasn’t enough, as a consequence, doctors informed Jennifer that her male privates had been fractured.
Jennifer was charged for the act of working in that industry and was hit with a $13,400 medical bill. In response, Jennifer decided to sue Silvia for $20,000 in damages.
Silvia, who had been married to Miguel for 40 years, claims she had no idea that Jennifer was transgender and stated, “I had no idea my husband had those inclinations.”
However, Silvia did know that Miguel had had a heart attack previously and was given medication for it that he wasn’t taking. While Polo informed Silvia that she was the one who solicited the act and could be charged as well, she wasn’t very sympathetic to Jennifer.
“My ruling,” declared Ana Maria Polo to Jennifer. “You got yourself in a criminal and punishable act. You could never get a single penny from anyone in a similar situation because you assumed all the risks in a completely illicit activity.”
Polo closed the case by saying that Jennifer is to get $5,000, which was as much as Silvia was willing to offer. (This may or may not be true. Caso Cerrado is known for making up stories and using actors in their “courtroom.” Like with their other “cases” this story should be treated with skepticism.)
