When Perez's 11-year-old daughter got pregnant, prompted everyone including a Perez to wonder how on earth this could happen.
Perez even speculated that sperm resting on a toilet seat must have somehow entered his daughter's vagina because he was positive the girl had not had sex with anyone.
But DNA testings proved that Perez was 200,000 times more likely the father of his daughter's baby than any other male on the planet.
In her closing argument, Schatzle suggested that only "a disgusting" father would have sex with his own daughter, which was another statement Perez found highly objectionable.
But this month a California Court of Appeal based in Santa Ana sided with the prosecutor, rejected the appeal and left intact the punishment: a term of 21 years to life in prison.
Denmark has introduced what is believed to be the world's first fat tax - a surcharge on foods that are high in saturated fat.
Butter, milk, cheese, pizza, meat, oil and processed food are now subject to the tax if they contain more than 2.3% saturated fat.
Some consumers began hoarding to beat the price rise, while some producers call the tax a bureaucratic nightmare.
Others suggest that many Danes will simply start shopping abroad.
Danish officials say they hope the new tax will help limit the population's intake of fatty foods.
However, some scientists think saturated fat may be the wrong target.
They say salt, sugar and refined carbohydrates are more detrimental to health and should be tackled instead.
