Pennsylvania farmers sexually abused animals for years, forced teen to participate and film their depraved acts
Matthew Brubaker, Marc Measnikoff and Terry Wallace were convicted for engaging in bestiality with horses, goats, dogs, and a cow and recruiting the minor to help them film their acts
CLEARFIELD COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA: A court decided last Thursday that three farmers must continue serving their decades-long prison sentences after reportedly having sex with horses, goats, dogs, and a cow. Matthew Brubaker, 32, Marc Measnikoff, 36, and Terry Wallace, 42, were convicted after engaging in bestiality and recruiting a teenage boy to help them film and participate in their depraved acts, Penn Live reported. Investigators revealed how all three men lived in rundown trailers on a farm near Muson, where they reportedly had sex with their livestock for four to five years. The teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, told detectives that he was tasked with retrieving animals and dropping them into a custom chute the men had designed to have sex with them. The teenager also revealed that the trio lured him into their farm by soliciting help in caring for livestock, but later ordered him to partake in the sex abuse.
The boy would eventually report the abuse to the cops, who busted up the ring in 2018. Authorities immediately shut down the farmers' sick operation and took the teen into protective custody. The Pennsylvania Superior Court panel -- in an opinion presented by President Judge Emeritus John Bender -- upheld the 20-41-year prison sentences for Brubaker, Measnikoff, and Wallace at a hearing on Thursday. According to the report, the trio argued that their sentences were too harsh -- insisting that Judge Paul Cherry, who originally sentenced them to jail, did not consider their rehabilitation needs but solely focused on the nature of the crimes and the teen's involvement.
The trio had pleaded guilty to charges of "corruption of minors, 730 counts of sexual intercourse with animals, and 730 counts of cruelty to animals" in Clearfield County court. In his verdict, Cherry had explained that the long sentences were to allow Meansikoff "adequate time to work on his mental health through treatment and time to refrain from said acts."
“A long incarceration will allow (him) adequate time to work on his mental health through treatment and time to refrain from said acts so that he may become a healthy, law-abiding, and productive member of society,” Cherry wrote in the case of Meansikoff. President Judge Bender agreed, saying the men were at the right place to get the mental health treatment they needed. Bender further justified their punishments saying the men had "exposed a minor child to (their) abhorrent offenses for years on end."
Earlier this year, MEAWW reported how a British man pleaded guilty to having sex with chickens and having his wife film the act apart from other sexual offenses. Rehan Baig, 37, appeared for a hearing before a judge at Bradford Crown Court on Friday, July 31, along with his wife, Heema Baig. The defendant pleaded guilty to a total of 11 charges including three of performing an act of penetration on chickens. In addition, he also confessed to downloading indecent images of children, possessing extreme pornographic images relating to sex acts with dogs and chickens, and various drug offenses. He also admitted to possessing 405 mg of cocaine and 4.07 g of cannabis resin.
