Moncton bestiality case adjourned until next week
Anthony Volgmann, 29, charged with bestiality, corrupting morals
The case of a 29-year-old Moncton man facing bestiality charges allegedly involving dogs has been set over for a week.
Anthony Volgmann appeared in Moncton provincial court on Monday with family members and his new lawyer, Jean Trahan, who requested the adjournment.
Volgman is accused of one count of committing bestiality and one count of corrupting morals by allegedly making bestiality images available to the public on the internet.
He will return to court on Jan. 27, when he is expected to enter pleas.
Volgmann remains released on the condition that he not be within 30 metres of any animals, or have any contact with the SPCA or attend any dog shows.
He was found fit to stand trial last month, following a psychiatric assessment.
He and his parents disagreed with the finding, duty counsel had told the court.
Volgmann was arrested in September after an investigation by the SPCA and the RCMP.
Police say they seized images when Volgmann was arrested at his home.
The alleged incidents occurred between January and September, according to the RCMP.
