MUNCIE, Ind. -- (WXIN) -- The Indiana Court of Appeals has overturned the conviction of a Muncie man who was found guilty of sexually assaulting his roommate's dog.
In August of 2015, Andy Allen “Uncle Andy” Shinnock, was arrested on a bestiality charge in connection with the alleged incident involving a 1-year-old female pit bull mix, according to our newsgathering partners at the Muncie Star Press.
At a bench trial last April, a Muncie police officer and a local psychologist each testified Shinnock had admitted to the crime. The roommate also testified he found Shinnock and the dog under extremely unusual circumstances, but he didn't witness the actual assault.
