Border Patrol Applicant Admits to Molestation, Bestiality in Job Interview

Yuma County Sheriff's Office(YUMA, Ariz.) -- Cody Slaughter may have been a little too forthcoming while interviewing for a job with the border patrol.

The 22-year-old from Somerton, Ariz., was arrested last week after U.S. Customs and Border Protection notified the Yuma County Sheriff's Office (YCSO) that during a July 2 "pre-employment screening" Slaughter admitted that he had molested a 2-year-old girl eight years ago, had sexual interactions with a dog, horse and pig, and had a history of drug use.  Slaughter later confirmed his statements to sheriff investigators, YCSO Maj. Leon Wilmot said in a police report.

Slaughter was arrested on charges of one count of criminal sexual conduct with a minor when he was 14 and three counts of bestiality between 2004 and 2012, but he was released on July 10 because the Yuma County Attorney's Office had not yet filed criminal charges against him.

Prosecutors have sent the case back to the YCSO for further investigation, and Chief Criminal Deputy County Attorney Roger Nelson said charges will likely be filed eventually, the Yuma Sun reported.

Justice of the Peace Jorge Lozano told Slaughter that charges could still be filed later, in which case he would be summoned back to court, the Sun reported.

According to the police report, the YCSO obtained a search warrant based on Slaughter's statements and searched his house.  Investigators recovered "several items that directly link the suspect to his prior statements and admissions," Wilmot said in the report.

The state has one year to file a misdemeanor charge and up to seven years to file other charges, Lozano said, according to the Sun.

Slaughter did not respond to multiple calls placed on Monday and Tuesday.

CDC Official Accused of Child Molesting, Bestiality

Jupiterimages/Thinkstock(ATLANTA) -- An official from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has been arrested for allegedly molesting a child and bestiality, according to police in DeKalb County, Ga.

Kimberly Lindsey, 44, a deputy director at the CDC, is charged with child molestation and bestiality for two incidences involving a 6-year-old child. Lindsey's live-in boyfriend, Thomas Westerman, 42, is also being charged with child molestation.

The pair is accused of involving the child in their sex acts, including allowing the boy to spank Lindsey's nude buttocks and letting him use an electric sex toy on her, according to warrants issued for their arrests.

Lindsey is also accused of performing sexual acts with two pets.

Police said they found evidence in the home during a search that led to the issuance of the warrants, though they would not comment on the nature of the alleged evidence.

The pair turned themselves in on Sunday after they learned warrants had been issued for their arrests, police told ABC affiliate WSB-TV.

Officers said a medical professional treating the victim alerted police. The incidences are alleged to have occurred in January of 2010 and August of 2011.

Lindsey is a deputy director for the Laboratory Science Policy and Practice Program Office at the CDC, where she oversees $1.5 billion in funds that are disbursed across the agency for emergency response funding. She is listed as "Top Leadership" on the organization's website, which also says she has worked extensively with bioterrorism prevention, HIV/AIDS prevention, and laboratory testing.

The website says she got her PhD from Emory and undergraduate degree from the University of Central Florida.

Lindsey was released on $20,000 bond and Westerman was released on $15,000 bond. Neither Lindsey nor Westerman could immediately be reached Tuesday.

The CDC had no comment other than to say its policy is to let situations like this play out in the criminal justice system.
