Nicholas Anthony Sardo, a 21-year-old man from Citra, Florida, has been arrested and charged with four counts of bestiality/sexual contact with an animal for allegedly having sex with a miniature horse on multiple occasions.
According to Marion County Sheriff’s Office officials, an unidentified witness contacted police on Friday, October 16, to report that he had seen Sardo having sex with a miniature male pony “named Jackie G in a pasture on a family member’s property” on Tuesday, October 13.
A second witness came forward to corroborate the story, saying that she also saw the criminal act and later approached Sardo about what she saw. The Marion County Sheriff’s Office said that Sardo immediately admitted to her that he had sex with the horse before later giving the same admission to investigators.
Sardo admitted to having sex with the horse on four separate occasions.
During his admission, Sardo allegedly told the investigating detective that he knew he was wrong for what he did and that “he was a sick man.”
He is currently being held at the Marion County Jail. At this time, there is no word on when his next court appearance will be.
The mini horse, which is owned by one of Sardo’s family members, is currently under the care of the owner. The Marion County Sheriff’s Office said that stipulations of Sardo’s future contact with the horse could be determined by a judge in the near future.
The Marion County Sheriff’s Office announced the arrest on Facebook with a post captioned “JUSTICE FOR JACKIE G”.
On October 16, 2018, a witness came forward and reported to Detective Juliano that she had witnessed Sardo having sex with Jackie G in a pasture on a family member’s property three days earlier. Another witness came forward saying she saw it as well, and she approached Sardo about what she had seen. Sardo immediately admitted to her that he had sex with the horse and also gave the same admission to Detective Juliano. Sardo added that he had sex with the horse four times during the course of a week, and that he used a condom each time because he didn’t want to get a disease from the horse.
That is all the information available at this time.
