Two men face bestiality charges in Forsyth County stemming from an Oct. 2015 incident with a dog.
Samuel Allen, 23 of Cumming, and Kristopher Lee Halverson, 26 of LaCrosse, Wisconsin, each face two counts of the felony charge, according to a Forsyth County Superior Court bill of indictment.
According to the report, they are accused of performing a “sexual act with ‘Ava,’ a dog, an animal” on Oct. 9, 2015.
The Superior Court docket lists the charge for Halverson as felony party to a crime, but that does not affect a potential sentence, according to District Attorney Penny Penn. If convicted, both may face the same sentence.
Forsyth County Superior Court Judge David. L. Dickinson is presiding over both cases.
This case is a re-indictment, which is being prosecuted on behalf of the state of Georgia by Michael S. Mahoney.
No trial date has been set yet.
