Louisiana senate approves bill banning sex with animals by 25 to 10 vote

The Louisiana state senate approved a bill banning having sex with animals by a 25 to 10 vote. The bill now goes to the House of Representatives, and will make sexual abuse to an animal illegal, require the animal to be seized from its abuser and ban anyone convicted from ever owning any pets in the future.

According to the Morning Bulletin, a previous law which included “crimes against nature” that included bestiality had been ruled unconstitutional in 2003 by the Supreme Court because it included anal sex between consenting adults. The new bill, SB236, as sponsored by Senator Morrell, states any person who engages in

“sexual contact with an animal” or knowingly participates in an animal being sexually abused, will be charged.

Before the vote, Senator Morrell stated:

“God forbid you vote against this bill; good luck explaining it.”

SB236 is the same law that is “currently on the books” Senator Morrell explained, “but without unconstitutional language defining some consensual human sex acts as crimes against nature. This bill is meant to separate bestiality and sex with animals and make it easier to prosecute animal cruelty sexual offenders.

The ten nay votes came from Republican senators – John Alario, Brett Allain, Dan Claitor, Jack Donahue, Jim Fannin, Ryan Gatti, Gerald Long, Beth Mizell, Jonathan Perry and Neil Riser. The president of the Louisiana Family Forum, Gene Mills, stated there was no need for another law on the books:

“We believe (current) Louisiana law is instructional in nature and is written to reflect the values of the citizens of the state. The last thing we need is another law on the books.”

Man who intentionally hanged a dog has been sentenced

A Washington man who admitted that he intentionally hanged a dog from a tree has been sentenced for his crime. According to Monday’s publication of the Olympian, James Leroy Evans, of Grays Harbor, will spend a year behind bars for killing a three-year-old pit bull mix named “Diamond.”

In a statement, Evans stated how (and why) he killed his dog in March 2016:

 “intentionally killed an animal by means of causing undue suffering. I hung a dog after it killed my iguana.”

Judge Carol Murphy also stipulated that Evans is prohibited from possessing any animals, or living in a home with animals, for five years. After the cruel killing of Diamond, a Facebook group (Justice (Just”Us”) for Diamond) was created.

The punishment for Diamond’s killer did little to appease her advocates. A post after sentencing reads:

A small group of us were at the status hearing at 1pm this afternoon to see if the trial of James Leroy Evans was still happening on the 14th of this month. In a surprise twist to everyone, including the judge, he decided to plead guilty right then and there. He gets one year in jail, not prison. A small amount of fees around $1000ish all told and 5 yrs with no animals.

We were dumb founded. Plus we were unprepared to deal with the emotional stress of reliving the horrible abuse and pain she suffered through. This brought it all home. Plus his lawyer got to tell Evans’s side to the story. All lies of course and no one got to hear the evidence we had against him and that she was raped and tortured. That was a hard one to take.

Diamond had been an emotional support dog for a child – she was temporarily staying with Evans while her owner sought permanent dog-friendly housing. A necropsy on Diamond’s body revealed that she had been “aggressively” sexually assaulted before her death.

Mississippi woman arrested for having ‘unnatural’ sex with a dog

A 43-year-old woman in Mississippi was arrested this week for allegations that she engaged in “unnatural” intercourse with a dog. According to Tuesday’s publication of the Clarion-Ledger, the woman accused of bestiality is identified as Amy Nicole Graves of Hattiesburg.

Graves’ offensive acts were discovered after Lamar County Sheriff’s officials received a tip about a video circulating on social media showing the alleged behavior. Sheriff Danny Rigel is quoted in the Daily Mail about the evidence received, “We got some visual documentation off social media that led to a search warrant and arrest warrant.”

Graves has been booked into the Lamar County Jail – if she is found guilty, she could have to register as a sex offender and might spend up to ten years behind bars.

While acts of bestiality are somewhat rare, they happen more often than one might imagine. In January, a sheriff’s deputy in Texas was fired after it was discovered that he had “sex with a small dog.” And not long ago, a Florida man was arrested after an investigation revealed that he had been sexually abusing a family dog for “years.”

Harris County deputy accused of having sex with a small dog

A Texas sheriff’s deputy was fired on Monday after having been arrested and charged with having sex with a small dog and posting the act on the Internet. Harris County Sheriff Deputy Andrew C. Sustaita, Jr., a six-year-veteran, was identified as the suspect during an investigation headed by the Harris County Sheriff’s High Tech Crime Unit.

According to the Chron, the investigation started after authorities were contacted about obscene material sourced back to an account in Harris County. Evidence revealed Sustaita allegedly had been producing the videos and then posting the egregious acts online. A video of Sustaita having sex with a small dog was specifically cited:

“The allegation involves production of obscene material that includes sexual contact with a dog,” stated Dane Schiller, a Harris County District Attorney’s Office spokesperson.

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez fired the deputy and states he will hold Sustaita accountable for the egregious acts.

“The possession of obscene and illicit material is made even more troubling when a Sheriff’s Office employee is found to be involved,” Gonzalez stated. “Every resource of this office will be dedicated to protecting the public and holding our employees accountable for wrongdoing.”

AbcNews reports Sustaita comes from a family of law enforcement officers. He has been charged with obscenity, a state jail felony. Investigators said additional charges could be filed at a later date.

Arrested: Man accused of sexually abusing family dog for years

A man from Pensacola faces charges of bestiality after a member of the family reported ongoing abuse to the family dog. On Monday, Bradley Jean Hubbard, 23,  was arrested and charged with sexually abusing a bull dog mix named “Baby Girl.” According to the News Journal, Hubbard has resided with his father and his father’s girlfriend for the last three years.

A family member reported the disturbing situation after telling authorities she had witnessed the suspect take the dog into his room. The woman told police the assaults had been happening for years and had gone on more than 100 times. She stated she had witnessed the attacks through a hole in the man’s bedroom door as the result of a past violent outburst.

The woman described the dog whimpering in pain, and that the frequency of the sexual assaults had recently increased prompting the woman to notify police fearing the dog’s safety. When ever anyone would ask about the dog’s physical symptoms, Hubbard told them “Baby Girl” was in heat. She said she finally had enough, when on December 28, Hubbard allegedly came into her bedroom, grabbed the dog and took her into his bedroom after which she heard the dog crying out in pain and said she couldn’t take it any longer.

Baby Girl has since been removed from the home, and a veterinarian examination shows her genitalia abused consistent with rape. The report states the dog is very aggressive and only loyal to one person at a time. Can anyone blame her? In 2011, Florida passed a bestiality law. Read more here.

Hubbard remains at the Escambia County Jail in lieu of $15,000 bond. He faces charges of engaging in sexual conduct with an animal and causing pain and suffering.
