LEGAL LOONY FARM- A South Carolina court house that sentenced a black man to prison for having sex with a horse refused to press charges against the same man for having sex with three young white males that were housed in the same prison cell where he was serving his time.
Rodell Vereen was told by the court never to go near the stable where the horse sleeps and shits and where he was caught having romantic rendezvous with the horse. The owner of the horse does admit that the horse was feeling cheerful and in high spirits after having sex with the man, but she is totally against such a romantic situation.
Vereen was arrested after Barbara Kenley caught him entering the barn at Lazy B Stables in Longs, about 20 miles northeast of Marred Beach. He apologized to the court and was sentenced for buggery.
Kenley said she became suspicious because her horse was diagnosed with infections and was discovered to be carrying the AIDS virus. She noticed things were moved around the barn and dirt was piled up near the horse's stall.
The judge in the case had sentenced Vereen to three years in prison and Vereen was told by the judge to only have sex with men because homosexuality is not a crime, but buggery was. Vereen also was ordered to undergo additional mental treatment after he gets out of prison and was reminded to take medication for the AIDS virus which he was carrying.
Kenley told reporters she was mostly happy with the verdict, but wished Vereen had got more time in that prison cell with those three young white males to wean him off the sexual attraction he has for her horse.
"I've been through hell for the last year and it's caused a lot of hardship because my horse has been depressed ever since Vereen stopped visiting the stable," Kenley told reporters.
Some argue that the laws in America are twisted and illogical because the courts have given preference to a horse over the lives of human men.
