Man Who Had Sex with Donkey Asks to Spend Hard Time in Jail
A man who avoided jail time after pleading guilty to having sex with a donkey asked a judge this week to revoke his light sentence and send him to the pokey instead.
Gideon D. Swartzentruber, 20, of Neillsville, Wisconsin, admitted in September to “encountering a female donkey and briefly having sex with it.”
He explained his behavior by telling investigators at the time that “his privates were out of control.”
A judge last month slapped him with a year’s probation, a $443 fine and mandatory counseling.
Swartzentruber appeared in court this week and asked to be sent to jail, according to News-Herald Media. The judge granted his request and sentenced him to a 30-day stint in the slammer.
The farmhand was fired after his boss caught him in the act with the donkey.
Swartzentruber, who was charged with a misdemeanor count of sexual gratification with an animal, said he did not hurt the donkey and that it was the first time “he had done anything like that.”
