A South Texas man with a history of having sex with horses broke his leg while attempting to perform another sexual act on a horse in February.
Cirilo Castillo Jr., 45, was found injured in a barn in Edinburg at around 7 a.m. on Feb. 17 when the barn’s owner fed her horses, according to a Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office news release.
Castillo, who had previously been warned to stay away from the barn following a prior arrest for having sex with the woman’s horses, told the woman and investigators that he had been hit by a car and crawled to the barn for shelter.
Investigators believe the horse kicked Castillo, causing the injury.
The 45-year-old was charged with criminal trespassing, a Class B misdemeanor punishable by up to 180 days in jail. He was arraigned June 3 before Hidalgo County Justice of the Peace Charlie Espinoza, who set his bond at $1,000.
Castillo has served two sentences for past sexual incidents involving horses: he was arrested in June 2013 after he tied up a horse named Nadia and had performed sexual acts on her. He received five years probation on a charge of cruelty to animals for the offense, The McAllen Monitor reported.
