Arizona Man Admits to Child Molestation, Bestiality… During Job Interview With Border Patrol
An Arizona man apparently admitted to authorities he had previously molested a 2-year-old girl and committed sex acts with several species of animals. But the man in question did so voluntarily during a job interview — with Customs and Border Protection officials.
Needless to say, he didn’t get the job.
Cody Slaughter, 22, of Somerton, Ariz., was arrested following the confession on July 2, the Yuma Sun reports.
CBP officials contacted the Yuma County Sheriff’s Office about the possible criminal activity that had taken place based on Slaughter’s comments made during a pre-employment interview. Following Slaughter’s arrest, he confirmed to police that he had molested a 2-year-old girl when he was 14 and had sexual contact with a pig, a dog and a horse between 2004 and 2012. He also admitted having a history of drug abuse.
The confessions reportedly came after interviewers asked Slaughter a standard employment question about his criminal background.
During their investigation, the Yuma Sheriff’s Department reportedly searched the suspect’s home and found evidence directly related to his admissions.
However, he was not charged and released on July 10 because the Yuma County Attorney’s Office had yet to file any formal criminal charges against him.
More from the Yuma Sun:
Chief Criminal Deputy County Attorney Roger Nelson said the reason no complaint was filed is the case has been sent back to the Yuma County Sheriff’s Office for further investigation. He added that he expects charges will eventually be filed in the case and that there are no statute of limitations on any of the crimes.
Slaughter was being held in the Yuma County jail on one count of sexual conduct with a minor and three counts of bestiality for alleged sexual relations with several species of animals, including a dog, a horse and a pig, at some point between 2004 and 2012.
But Justice of the Peace Jorge Lozano said that charges could still be filed later. If charges are filed, he explained, he would be summoned to court rather than being rearrested.
“The County Attorney’s Office is doing some follow up investigations on this case. Because no complaint has been filed he must be released. According to the rules of criminal procedure,” Lozano told KSWT News.
KSWT-TV reports the county has up to a year to file a misdemeanor charge but up to 7 years and or an unlimited amount of time for some of the other more serious charges.
