A New South Wales man could be released from jail as early as next week after being found guilty to committing an act of cruelty to an animal.
Daniel Raymond Webb-Jackson, 31, was sentenced to ten months jail with a non-parole period of for months after committing two sexual acts with a horse.
A court heard that Webb-Jackson triggered an alarm and was caught on CCTV after breaking into a Grafton trainers stables on January 22.
Police were subsequently called and on arrival found Webb-Jackson hiding in the corner of an open stall.
Despite admitting to committing two sexual acts with a horse during police interviews, Webb-Jackson pleaded not guilty when fronting the court.
The court heard that Webb-Jackson digitally penetrated the horse and allowed the horse to fellate him.
The trainer of the two-year-old filly told The Daily Examiner that the horse had been left traumatised from the incident.
“She is only a little two-year-old and we had to put her out in the paddock,” the trainer said.
“The filly went from being quiet to just being highly strung, she changed in 24 hours. We had to put her in the paddock to try and get her head right.
“You don’t want to see this sort of thing happening, it’s really sick stuff.”
With time served, a four month non-parole period will see Webb-Jackson eligible for release next week.
