PHIL CAMPBELL, ALABAMA — Accidentally buttdialing his neighbor while having sex with his German shepherd landed Russell Joseph Meyers, 54, in jail, making him only the second person to be charged under Alabama’s recent anti-bestiality law.
The neighbor who received the disturbing voicemail message notified police. Meyers lived in a shed with his two dogs, a chihuahua and a German shepherd. When questioned by police, Meyers admitted to having sex with his German shepherd four times, but in court he said he was ‘set up.’ He also claimed he never had sexual relations with the chihuahua.
He is being charged with four counts of bestiality, second degree possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. The District Attorney also filed a motion to add the charge of sexual motivation against the defendant, which means he would have to register as a sex offender if he’s found guilty. Meyers is currently being held in Franklin County Jail on a $6,000 bond, and if he is released on bond, he is forbidden from coming into contact with his neighbor, or any animals, and he can’t possess any firearms.
Franklin County Sheriff Shannon Oliver is quoted by Times daily as saying: “This is one of most disturbing and disgusting cases our office has ever been involved with. The scary thing is that (incidents like this) must have been happening before and must be a big enough problem for the state legislators to establish this law.”
“It’s sad to think that something like this happens that we need a law like this,” he added.
