Lawyers for donkey-sex suspect challenge law's constitutionality
The Gainesville Sun ^ | December 11, 2012 | Vishal Persaud

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."

"Your Honor, he's a dreadfully dumb defendant, but he deserves due process and he didn't diddle Doodle."

"Dismissed."

Well, since Gay Marriage is now a dead certain lock, if a guy wishes to sleep with his miniature ass... who am I to object?

So the lawyer's response to his client's desire to have intimate relations with a donkey named Doodle was basically this:

Cock a Doodle? Do!

The lawyer will probably cut and paste every argument in favor of gay “marriage” and gay sex education in schools, changing just a few words to fit his client’s tastes. Morally, I have trouble seeing any difference between this guy’s hobby and Barney Frank’s personal life - both deserve exactly the same social acceptance. Sadly, it wouldn’t surprise me if the far left went all out in favor of this guy’s alleged right to love how he chooses.

When asked by the media what it was like, Doodles said:

“It was no big thing!”

Not too many years ago, a person with a good grip on reality would have laughed at this guy for being an aberrant freak..

Today, that same person will cringe knowing that a new court precedent will likely be set.

Who didn't see this coming? The minute you say to men can marry each other, and engage in sodomy, well, you have opened the flood gates to all manner of perversion.

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.

A 'miniature' donkey??????? WTF, over? I guess that would have to mean any jenny that would not have to be stump trained in order to be sold into bondage anywhere in Mexico, Washington state, or New Zealand, inter alia.

After this last election I feel like I've been raped by a donkey!

That would constitute "legitimate" rape, most definitely about power not pleasure or oneness and against my wishes on threat of further violence.

Sheesh. What a Bizzaro world we now live in. 40 years ago anyone in the GLBT “community” would have been laughed out of town, if they came out of the closet. Now this!!!!!!!

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.

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.”

Forgive my profiling ~ but ~ the only thing that could make this story even better would be for it to be revealed that Carlos Romero is an illegal.

Is it possible hell is earth?
