A veterinarian from Florida (USA) who created and shared videos in which he was seen sexually abusing dogs and who also collected child pornography from the network was sentenced this Friday to more than 21 years in prison, the Prosecutor’s Office reported.

Prentiss K. Madden, a licensed professional veterinarian who had his practice in Aventura, southeast Florida, is guilty of producing videos of himself “engaging in sexual activities with dogs and sharing them with others in chats,” the public prosecutor said in a statement.

Madden “recorded himself sexually abusing dogs and shared the videos,” he explained.

According to official information, the vet kept these videos on his mobile phones.

In addition, the Prosecutor’s Office indicates, he is also guilty of accessing a Dropbox account that contains images of child pornography, receiving photographs and videos of child pornography through various chats and talking about child sexual abuse in them.

On July 29, Madden had pleaded guilty to three counts of receiving child pornography, one of possession of child pornography and another of creating an animal abuse video, the latter based on a federal statute that punishes acts of animal torture.

According to the Prosecutor’s Office, this case was presented as part of the Safe Childhood Project, a national initiative to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse.

The initiative, which brings together federal, state and local resources, was launched in 2006 by the Department of Justice to “better locate, detain and prosecute persons who exploit children via the Internet, as well as to identify and rescue victims.” .
