Ipswich Man Pleads Guilty To Felony Bestiality Charges

KELO Court Gavel

An Ipswich man accused of bestiality has admitted engaging in sexual acts with two calves.
Fifty-seven-year-old James Schumacher pleaded guilty Wednesday to two charges of felony bestiality, after unsuccessfully arguing earlier this year that the charges he faced were unconstitutional.
Prosecutors will drop four other charges under terms of the plea agreement.
Authorities say the incidents happened in 2016 and 2017 on a Bath-area farm. Schumacher faces up to four years in prison and $8,000 in fines. Sentencing wasn’t immediately scheduled.
