Man admits having sex with horse and donkey
A 66-year-old man pleaded guilty today to having sex with a horse and a donkey.
Joseph Squires appeared at Leicester Crown Court charged with buggery of a donkey between February 2 and February 5, 1999, and buggery of a horse between March 15 and 18, 2004.
He also faced charges of damaging property - relating to the two animals on the same dates.
Squires, whose address was previously given as Overpark Avenue, Leicester, was due to stand trial but pleaded guilty to all four counts at Leicester Crown Court today.
Defence counsel Amar Mehta told the court Squires had no previous convictions and was of previous good character.
Requesting he be released on bail, he said: "The defendant does not have a stable address although he says his daughter can provide an address."
Judge Michael Pert QC refused the application and remanded Squires into custody for a pre-sentence report to be prepared. He will be sentenced on May 24.
