OCALA - Lawyers representing a Marion County man accused of sexual activity with a miniature donkey have filed a motion asking a judge to declare the Florida statute banning sexual activities with animals unconstitutional.
Carlos R. Romero, 32, declared last week that he wanted to take his case to trial. He is accused of sexual activities involving animals, a first-degree misdemeanor, after he allegedly was found in a compromising position in August with a female miniature donkey named Doodle.
In the motion filed in Marion County court on Dec. 6, the assistant public defenders handling Romero's case Joshua Wyatt, Scott Schmidt and Joshua Lukman wrote that the statute infringes upon Romero's due process rights and violates the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment in the U.S. Constitution.
The statute's designated punishment for a first-degree misdemeanor conviction, a year in county jail, also constitutes cruel and unusual punishment and is excessive, the attorneys wrote.
Romero previously rejected the State Attorney's Office plea offer of a year of probation, a $200 fine, a psychosexual evaluation and possible treatment, STD testing, no contact with children in a school setting, no ownership or possession of any mammals, and revocation of his license to work in horse racing.
Last week at a brief status conference, Romero confirmed that he wanted to take his case to trial. Jury selection is scheduled to begin Monday.
The attorneys claim that the statute deprives Romero of his "personal liberty and autonomy when it comes to private intimate activities."

If two faggots who have the same plumbing (thus cannot procreate!) can get married,then why oh why can't a guy marry more than one women? At least these polygamists can make the argument that they can procreate. More than you can say for faggots.
Oh, it's going to get real interesting.
“The minute you say to men can...”
Doh! to = two
Liberturdians again will support the perverts
A man and his donkey......it’s a beautiful thing.
Was the donkey under the age of consent?
That would constitute "legitimate" rape, most definitely about power not pleasure or oneness and against my wishes on threat of further violence.
He was high delightedly diddling Doodle’s dangerous donkey derriere...
Now we are bombarded every day with GLBT propaganda supporting that which any one with common sense knows is a futile and dangerous lifestyle.
I had never ever heard about sex with animals till I heard President Bush mention the need to keep laws against bestiality. I had to look up the word to make sure what he was talking about. I didn't know we had laws like that, nor did I conceive of a need for laws like that.
Still, after the inroads being made by LGBTs, I think we all knew it would be coming. Never thought it would happen so fast. What a low and depraved level we are being dragged down into here in the USA.
Sometimes I just feel shell-shocked. Like I just went to sleep and woke up in some alternate universe, where Up is Down, Black is White, and the entire culture I grew up in has totally vanished, with not even a smidgen remaining.
Some guys just really like a little a—!
Not in donkey years.
It’s interesting. The attorneys make the claim that the law is unconstitutional because it doesn’t require that physical harm and lack of consent be demonstrated. However, the very same could be said for laws against sex with children.
He wouldn’t be riding or grooming my horses:
“In previous interviews, Romero said he would become destitute if he had accepted the state’s plea offer because he wouldn’t be allowed to work as an exercise rider and groomer in the horse racing industry...
Romero admitted that he gets sexually aroused around animals more so than humans and allegedly masturbated with Doodle in his room. He claimed that he would have had sex with the miniature donkey eventually, but that she wasn’t ready and was “blooming into maturity.”
Romero said in previous interviews after one hearing that he never harmed the animal and all he wants is to have Doodle back in his care.”
We’s slippin’ and sliddin’ now. The “right” of proud perverts to ravish children is coming along, too.
Is it possible hell is earth?
