Sex with dead deer not illegal, lawyer argues

`Bryan James Hathaway, 20, of Superior, was arrested on “a misdemeanour charge of sexual gratification with an animal” after indulging in intercourse with said deceased deer on 11 October.

His attorney, public defender Fredric Anderson, last week filed a motion with a Douglas County court which argued “because the deer was dead, it was not considered an animal and the charge should be dismissed”. He wrote: “The statute does not prohibit one from having sex with a carcass.” [..]

Judge Lucci summed the matter up concisely with: “I’m a little surprised this issue hasn’t been tackled before in another case.” He then promised to render a decision before Hathaway’s next court appearance on 1 December.’
