Sexual Abuse of Animal
Kevin Faircloth of Waterbury Connecticut was charged with beating and sodomizing a small dog with a candle. Kevin blamed it on the fact that he stopped taking his medication because it made him tired. The dog had to be put down due to the severity of the injuries. Kevin was arrested for putting a pipe bomb on a car n 2009.
Faircloth’s sister, Dawn Dempsey, was arrested in October after an animal control officer brought Riley to Mattatuck Animal Hospital after Dempsey reported the dog was a stray that she had found. But police talked with Dempsey’s neighbors who said she had owned the dog for years.
Faircloth later admitted to police he stopped taking medication for depression and schizophrenic paranoia because the pills made him tired. He told a detective that at some point while he was off of those meds, he beat Riley “pretty bad” then sodomized the dog with a candle.
Faircloth was initially detained for violating his parole, but was hit later with additional charges related to the alleged abuse. Faircloth was held on a $5,000 bond and was due back in court next month. Court records indicate Dempsey was granted a court diversionary program, which will likely lead to a dismissal of the animal cruelty charge she’s facing.
