Yesterday, Eric Easley was charged with first-degree rape, first-degree burglary and third-degree domestic violence after a woman told deputies he broke into her home, raped her and held her for nearly a day against her will.
Easley broke into a home in Wilmer Alabama early Saturday, held a woman against her will and sexually assaulted her. The woman escaped early Sunday and notified deputies before seeking treatment at a local hospital.
The story then goes on to say,
In November of 2010, a Wilmer man was charged with felony cruelty to an animal after Mobile County sheriff's deputies said he sexually abused a miniature horse and was also charged with the felony of killing or disabling livestock.
The spokesperson said that two separate charges were filed because Alabama has no specific provision in its sexual abuse laws to cover bestiality.
Deputies were first called to a residence on Wilmer Road that serves as a breeding facility for the miniature horses.
The owner of the female horse noticed the animal was acting strangely and deputies found tail hair tied to a post, indicating someone had tried to tie the tail to the post. The deputies and a veterinarian discovered blood and other evidence that indicated the horse had been sexually abused.
The owner found a wallet containing Eric Easley's identification, including a driver's license and Social Security card, near the horse.
Alabama doesn’t have sexual abuse laws to cover bestiality?
