Sardo was arrested with four counts of bestiality and sexual contact with an animal after witnesses came forward and said that they saw Sardo having sex with the animal, which was identified as ‘Jackie G’ who lived in a pasture on a family member’s property.
One of the witnesses said that she confronted Sardo about it, who immediately admitted that he had done it. A detective was called to investigate and Sardo told the detective the same thing.
Sardo confessed that he had sex with the horse four times during the course of the week. He told police that he thought “he was a sick man.”
Sardo is currently being held in the Marion County Jail.
