Miami, Florida – A licensed veterinarian based in Aventura, Florida who recorded himself sexually abusing dogs, shared the bestiality videos on-line, and collected on-line child pornography, was sentenced today in Miami federal court to over 21 years in prison.

Prentiss K. Madden, is guilty of producing videos of himself engaged in sexual activity with dogs and sharing them with others in chats. Madden kept these bestiality videos, as well as chats about bestiality, in his cellular telephones. Madden also is guilty of accessing a Dropbox account containing images of child pornography, receiving child pornography photographs and videos through social media chats, talking about child sexual abuse during chats, and storing thousands of child pornography images in his Dropbox account and cellular telephones.

On July 29, Madden pleaded guilty to three counts of receipt of child pornography, one count of possession of child pornography and one count of creation of an animal crush video, in violation of a federal statute that punishes acts of animal torture, including bestiality.

“We at Caring Hands Animal Hospital are appalled by the nature of the charges against Prentiss Madden,” the hospital where he worked said in a statement after his initial arrest. “Our legal team and every single member of the Caring Hands family will be doing everything in our power to aid law enforcement and facilitate their investigation and prosecution.”
