Media Posting of Animal Sexual Assault in Mississippi

Feb 21, 2017, Tuesday Amy Nicole Graves, 43, was arrested for "unnatural intercourse" with a large mixed- breed dog. The case was brought to the authorities attention by Crime Stoppers when a video was posted online of the alleged act. 

“We were able to download pictures from that website that depicted the incident and through the investigation, we were able to identify that it was her,” Sheriff Danny Rigel told The Post.

The police obtained a search warrant to her home in Hattiesburg, Mississippi and they subsequently arrested her for violating Miss. Code §97-29-59: "Every person who shall be convicted of the detestable and abominable crime against nature committed with mankind or with a beast, shall be punished by imprisonment in the penitentiary for a term of not more than ten years."

The victim, the large mix-breed dog is in the care of a relative and Graves is being held in Lamar County Jail waiting for arraingment. 

March 14, 2017 it was reported that Graves plead guilty to a misdameanor and sentenced to one (1) year suspended with credit for time served. Graves served twenty-one (21) days and is required to serve the rest of the sentence at mandatory court approved counseling. 

The case was resolved this way due to the fact that Statute of Limitations, a set  amount of time the case is allowed to brought to courts, was missed roughtly by one (1) month.

However, what is unknown is how long she is required to report to counseling, if the dog was given back to her, if any other animals in her care were taken from her. There is nothing in Mississippi law that prohibits an abuser from getting the animal back, from owning more animals, or required to have mandatory counseling.
