Warrant issued for man accused of sex with donkey
A warrant was issued today in the case of a man accused of having sex with a horse and a donkey after he failed to turn up at court.
Joseph Squires, 66, of Overpark Avenue, Leicester, was due to appear at Leicester Crown Court charged with buggery of a donkey between February 1999 and April the same year, and buggery with a horse between March 5 and 12 2004.
He is also accused of criminal damage to the animals during the same dates.
Squires did not attend the scheduled plea and case management hearing and the court heard he had lost touch with his solicitors.
Judge Michael Pert QC issued a bench warrant for his arrest.
