A licensed veterinarian, based in Florida, who recorded himself sexually abusing dogs, shared the bestiality videos online, and collected online child pornography, was sentenced Friday in Miami federal court to over 21 years in prison.
Prentiss K. Madden, is guilty of producing videos of himself engaged in sexual activity with dogs and sharing them with others in chats.
Madden kept these bestiality videos, as well as chats about bestiality, in his cellular telephones.
Madden also is guilty of accessing a Dropbox account containing images of child pornography, receiving child pornography photographs and videos through social media chats, talking about child sexual abuse during chats, and storing thousands of child pornography images in his Dropbox account and cellular telephones.
