A 23-year-old man caught having sex with an animal for the second time has reportedly been convicted of bestiality charges.

The convict, Isaac Cluley was sentenced at Leicester Crown Court on Wednesday, leaving the judge asking if he has overpowering sexual interest in horses, DailyStar reports.

His conviction of sexually assaulting a pony comes four years after he was prosecuted for a similar offence of having sex with a different horse.

 

Last August, Cluley pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing to one count of sexual penetration of a living animal and admitted possessing extreme pornography, including mobile phone footage of the pony.

His latest sexual offence left a family’s pet shetland pony scared and defensive.

Lawyer, William Edis QC said;

For the second time in your life you’re before the court for having sexual intercourse with a horse and that – if I say no more – is an alarming picture.

One thing I have to do as the judge is to try and work out why you’ve committed this unusual offence twice.

Is it because you have overpowering sexual interest in horses? Is it a cry or help or attention seeking?

On his part, prosecuting officer, Andrew Fitch-Holland, said a friend of the defendant’s stumbled upon the video on his phone when he used it to call his mum.

The horse’s owner attended court to read a personal impact statement, saying;

The fact someone was walking around and prepared to rape an animal on more than one occasion concerns me greatly.

The 44-year-old woman added;

I feel anxious because I don’t know how many times it’s happened.

After the hearing, she said;

The pony was such a sweetie, so trusting, but is now wary and defensive. When she becomes scared and fearful – even by something normal like having a rug put on – it reminds me of what happened. If it was down to me he would be in custody now.

I can only hope whatever his rehabilitation involves, that it works.

I can’t forgive what he did to a harmless animal, I’ve not heard anything to explain why he’s done it and he’s shown no remorse.

Cluley, described as having learning difficulties, was in “considerable distress” following his arrest and officers were concerned for his wellbeing.

He told officers: “I want help with my mental health, it’s why I’ve been drinking more lately.”

Cluley from Aylestone, Leicester, was given a six-month jail sentence, suspended for two years, with a 30-day rehabilitation activity requirement.

He will have to attend up to 40 days of a sex offender programme and pay the pony’s owner £350 in compensation.

Cluley was also placed on a two-month electronically monitored home curfew, between 8pm and 8am.

He will be on a sex offender register for five years and was placed on a sexual harm prevention order, for the same duration – stipulating various conditions, including not entering a field, paddock or any animal enclosure where there is livestock, when he is on his own.

He is barred from working with animals in any capacity and cannot own or care for any animal without the permission of his offender manager.
