CONWAY, SC – A man caught “being intimate” with a horse has been sentenced to three years in prison!
Rodell Vereen was caught by a surveillance camera sneaking into the Lazy B stables and taking advantage of one of the horses.
Barbara Kenley, owner of the stables, had set up the camera after having had previous problems with Vereen. He was caught last year with the same exact horse! At the time he pleaded guilty and was only given probation.
However, Kenley had her suspicions he was back, and set up the camera in July. “Police kept telling me it couldn’t be the same guy,” Kenley said. “I couldn’t believe that there were two guys going around doing this to the same horse.”
After finally catching him on tape, she staked out her own stables until Vereen showed up again. She held him at shotgun point until cops arrived to arrest him.
Kenley said she thought about shooting him but decided not to. “Everyone around here has horses,” Kenley said. “And they all said the same thing. You should have shot him.”
Vereen has pleaded guilty to buggery, and received a sentence of three years in prison, mandatory counseling and a ban from going near the stables.
