Ex-cop facing child pornography, bestiality charges
LOUISIANA – An ex-Louisiana police officer arrested last December for allegedly sexually abusing animals has now been charged with more than 30 counts of child pornography.
Terry Yetman, of Bossier City, was taken into custody on Friday in Webster Parish and charged with 31 counts of possession of pornography involving juveniles.
His bond was set at $620,000 and additional charges could be filed, KSLA reported. Additional information was not made available.
The arrest comes months after Yetman turned himself in to the Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office following an investigation into allegations of sexual abuse of animals. Officials said they discovered electronic evidence showing Yetman’s alleged bestiality with a retired police dog.
He was charged with 20 felony counts of performing sexual acts with an animal and 24 counts of filming the acts.
According to In Defense of Animals, an international organization that protects animals, a petition for his prosecution has received more than 20,000 signatures.
He is expected to appear in court later this month in that case.
