An Everett, Pennsylvania man pleaded guilty this past Wednesday in relation to sexual assaults involving both a child and a horse.
Jury selection was about to start for 44-year-old Gordon Kinzey Jr. when he decided to plead guilty to five counts of indecent assault of a person less than 13 years of age, and a single count of sexual intercourse with an animal.
Bedford County District Attorney Bill HigginsÂ says the investigation began when a 17-year-old girl reported that Mr. Kinzey, who was her aunt’s boyfriend, had molested her for several years starting when she was just 8 years old.
Authorities confirmed her story when they obtained Facebook communication between him and the girl, as well as a recorded phone call between the two.
While reviewing the Facebook messages, a state trooper found Kinzey to have an apparent horse fetish and â€œwas bragging about performing sexual intercourse on a black stallion.â€
Two farmhands had witnessed him performing oral sex on a horse as well.
â€œWithout question, Gordon Kinzey is a disgusting sexual deviant,â€ Higgins said in a statement.
â€œFortunately, as a result of these convictions, he will be required to register as a sexual offender for the rest of his life, so the parents can take precautionary measures to keep their children away from him,â€ Higgins said.
He faces three to six years in state prison, followed by five years probation, when he is sentenced June 17th.
He;s being held in the Bedford County Jail on a $95,000 bond.
