A 22-year-old San Pedro man who was caught on camera allegedly having sex with a neighbor’s dog pleaded not guilty to animal cruelty charges in a Long Beach courtroom last Monday, Nov. 18. The San Pedro Beacon was first to break the story on Friday, Nov. 15.

The District Attorney’s Office charged Christopher Caceres with one felony count of animal cruelty, another felony count of first degree burglary and a misdemeanor count of sexual assault on an animal.

Caceres is being held on $100,000 bail and is due back in court for a preliminary hearing next week.
