ST. JOHNS (AP) – A 62-year-old mid-Michigan man is charged with having sex with a horse.
The Lansing State Journal reported Friday that court records show John Robert Mester was accused of a similar crime 10 years ago.
The resident of Clinton County’s Riley Township is charged with one count of committing bestiality and one count of aggravated indecent exposure.
He’s accused of crossing a fence into his neighbor’s horse pasture in mid-June, where authorities say he had sex with a Thoroughbred mare.
In 2001, Mester was accused of having sex with a pony in Olive Township. He pleaded no contest to attempted animal torture and was sentenced to 30 days in jail and a year of probation.
His attorney, Robert Hackett, declined to comment on the current case.
