Case Updates: 1 update(s) available
Paul Corey, a 36-year old self-employed logger has denied two counts of cruelty to animals at Vermont District Court in St, Albans. These charges come from a pending charge against Corey of sexual assualt on a minor under age 16. In October 2001, Corey was arrested for allegedly raping a female minor repeatedly between May 1 and May 31 of 2001.
Vermont State Police executed a search warrant at Corey's Guilmette Road residence on January 15. The police were searching for pornographic materials that might be connected to the sexual assault charges. Police found several pornographic videotapes at Corey's home. One of those tapes allegedly shows Corey and Tammy Paquin, 34, also from Guilmette Road, engaging in sexual acts with Corey's two dogs, Simba and Chubbers. Chubbers has subsequently been euthanized at the Franklin County Humane Society because he had parvo. Simbus has been returned to his original owners. This case has led to calls from local prosecutors for changes in the Vermont statutes as Vermont has no besiality laws in place to protect animals.
Paquin has confessed to two counts of cruelty to animals. She has been sentenced to one year in prison for each charge, with all time suspended but 10 days.
Paul Corey faces two identical charges of animal cruelty as well. Corey has not yet stood trial for the sexual assualt of a minor or the animal cruelty charges, but has been prohibited from being the primary caregiver for any animal and is not allowed to possess Viagra, which was found by police at his home.
