Alabama - A Wilmer man today pleaded guilty to sexually abusing a miniature horse and raping a woman, and a judge somewhat reluctantly accepted a deal offered by prosecutors for a three-year prison sentence. Easley, 29, hesitated when Mobile County Circuit Judge Joseph “Rusty” Johnston asked him if he was pleading guilty because he was guilty. “Not necessarily. … It’s in my best interest to plead guilty,” he said.
Wright said prosecutors had issues related to the victim in the case. She said the woman had a drug problem, a warrant for her arrest and recently had eluded police. Prosecuting the rape under those circumstances would have been difficult, she said. “It’s pretty disturbing, probably top 10 disturbing case,” Johnston said. Under terms of the plea bargain, the judge sentenced Easley to 15 years in prison and suspended all but three years. The judge also dismissed animal cruelty and domestic violence charges as part of the deal. The assault on the miniature horse occurred on Oct. 29, 2010. Wright said Easley went onto the property on Wilmer Road, tied the animal’s tail to a fence post inside the horse pen and then sexually assaulted it.
The rape occurred on the following July 16, after Easley had gotten out of jail on bail in the horse molestation case. According to the account offered by Wright, the woman woke up to find the defendant in her kitchen and asked what he was doing there. The two argued, and Easley slapped the woman and tried to choke her, Wright said. She said he took the woman’s cell phone, waited for it to get dark and then ripped off her clothes and raped her. Later, the prosecutor said, he made the victim take a bath and threatened to drown her if she tried to get away.
You know how people always look at MJ’s flu game as one of his career defining moments? Whether it be the images of him sitting on the bench exhausted or puking in the locker room or Scottie carrying him off the court, it’s all the crux of his greatness? Well I kind of feel like this court case is Alabama’s flu game. Just the definition of their craziness. I mean look at this dude. Running all over town completely out of control. Raping chicks, raping miniature horses, kidnapping bitches in their own home. Zero percent chance any normal place run by sane individuals would lock this dude up for anything less than 15-20 right? So what does Alabama lay down? 3 years maximum. Boom. Greatness. Money shot right up in your eyeball America.
