A Fort Lauderdale man was arrested Sunday and charged with knowingly having sexual contact with a pet dog named Mimi.
Jenson Bolla-Sosa, 28, of Fort Lauderdale, was also charged with cruelty to an animal and resisting arrest without violence.
According to a probable cause affidavit that Broward County first appearance court Judge John “Jay” Hurley read aloud Monday, witnesses observed Bolla-Sosa having sex with the dog, and told officers that it was whimpering in pain.
“We have serious cases in here, judge, that involve the abuse of women or the abuse of men, of human beings, and they are able to post bond,” Conover said. “The facts of this case are not good. But comparing it to the abuse of a human being is not as significant.”
“I think abuse of an animal in certain circumstances can be just as significant and troubling,” Hurley said.
Though he ordered a $12,500 bond, Bolla-Sosa is being held pending an immigration investigation.
