Meet Jesus Gutierrez: father of six, Manhattan resident, and small dog rapist. Would you marry him? The owner of the dog he assaulted did just that.
His own attorney characterized Gutierrez’s 30-minute sexual assault on his girlfriend’s Maltese as “inexplicable.” That’s the same word that leaps to mind when I’m reminded that if it had happened here in Kentucky, prosecutors could not charge Gutierrez with a crime. That’s because while the small dog was “visibly shaken,” she wasn’t physically harmed. No blood, no foul, right?
Anyway, after catching her boyfriend grinding into her Maltese on hidden video camera, the dog owner eventually stood by her man and gave up her pup. According to New York Daily News, Gutierrez had completed a year of court-ordered counseling and married the girl whose dog he had assaulted. This prompted Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Phyllis Chu to conditionally discharge Gutierrez and prohibit him from having pets for five years. And since the happy couple is now married, the blushing bride’s little dog had to go. I guess love isn’t just blind: it’s insane too.
