(CLEVELAND) - A Cleveland man faces a court hearing on Monday after being charged under Ohio's new anti-bestiality law, which went into effect in March of 2017. Scott Turner, 48, made his first appearance on Wednesday, when he pleaded not guilty to a second-degree misdemeanor charge of having sexual contact with an animal. He could face up to 90 days in jail.
Turner was released after posting $2,500 bond. Turner served almost 13 years in prison for molesting children. Turner pleaded guilty to over a dozen counts of rape in three separate cases.
