QUEENSBURY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – A New York man accused of having a sexual encounter with a dog pleaded guilty to multiple charges on Wednesday.
Gene Warner, 36, pleaded guilty to felony counts of criminal possession of a weapon, criminal possession of marijuana and attempted sexual misconduct.
The Warren County District Attorney’s Office says that Warren was arrested on March 2 after he was driving erratically on Luzerne Road in Queensbury. Police say they found crystal methamphetamine, marijuana and a pellet gun inside the vehicle.
He was also accused of having a rifle, which he could not legally possess, and additional marijuana after a search of his home and a motel room in Queensbury.
Police say a search of his home also uncovered a cell phone with a video showing him having a sexual encounter with the dog.
When Warner was arrested, police say the dog was not at his rental home. Police attempted to locate the dog to determine its well-being, but were not able to do so.
Warner is scheduled to be sentenced at the end of August.
