SWAT cop and teacher wife charged over sexual abuses including bestiality

Charges of child pornography, rape, sexually abusing an animal and "mingling harmful substances" have been issued against a top cop and his wife.

Former sheriff’s deputy Dennis Perkins, 44, and his wife Cynthia Perkins, 34, are jointly accused of some 150 separate felonies.

Among them are charges of child abuse images, first-degree rape, attempted first-degree rape, sexual battery of a child under the age of 13, video voyeurism and one count of sexual abuse of a dog.

The indictment also includes 61 counts of producing child pornography. Court papers say the couple were suspected of serving cupcakes and drinks contaminated with semen.

Local news station WAFB reports that the Louisiana Attorney General’s Office says the case is still ongoing and that the office is dealing with “a mountain of evidence”.
