Kentucky Pair Plead Guilty to Bestiality Charges
By West Kentucky Star Staff
MAYSVILLE - Attorney General Daniel Cameron announced Tuesday that work by his Office of Special Prosecutions led to the conviction of two Kentuckians for sexual crimes against an animal.

Cameron's office said this case is believed to be Kentucky's first conviction of bestiality since the General Assembly passed Senate Bill 67 on June 27, making sexual crimes against an animal a Class D felony.

On Nov. 23 44-year-old Nolene Horn of Bracken County and 50-year-old Christopher Jones of Mason County pled guilty in Mason County Circuit Court to two counts of sexual crimes against an animal, a Class D Felony, and two counts of torture of a dog, a Class A Misdemeanor. Judge Stockton B. Wood is scheduled to determine sentencing on Feb. 22.

The Maysville Police Department and the Boone County Sheriff's office investigated the case, and Assistant Attorney General Rewa Zakharia of the Attorney General's Office of Special Prosecutions prosecuted the case on behalf of the Commonwealth.
