Placeholder Image

A judge on Tuesday ordered Byron Christopher Jordan to undergo a mental evaluation before the court proceeds with charges against him of bestiality.

Newton County Superior Court Judge Eugene Benton ordered Jordan to undergo a mental evaluation to see if he can be held criminally responsible for his actions.

Jordan was arrested in June 2010 after witnesses allegedly saw him having sexual intercourse with several horses.

Jordan was charged with giving a false name to an officer and bestiality and transferred to the Newton County Detention Center. If convicted of bestiality, he could be sentenced to one to five years confinement.
