Deltona Man Now Facing Bestiality, Animal Cruelty Charges

Dog has new name, new family, says Sheriff's Office


Deltona, FL - The Deltona man accused of having over 1,400 files of child pornography and videos showing him having sex with his family's dog is now charged with animal cruelty and sexual activity with an animal.

That's after a judge signed a warrant applying those charges to 20-year-old Joshua Jobe, who remains in the Volusia County Branch Jail without bond.

Jobe was arrested on August 14th after his phone, which was previously stolen from him, was found to have about 1,400 files of child porn, along with videos of him having some kind of sexual contact with his family's dog, Brownie.

The investigation later yielded his new charges, which includes animal cruelty, a felony, and sexual activity with an animal, a misdemeanor.

Additionally, on a more positive note, Volusia deputies have stated that the dog has a new name and a new family.

Her name is now Penny and she was adopted by the family of Volusia Sheriff’s Lt. Kurt Schoeps, who supervises VSO's Child Exploitation and Internet Crimes Against Children units.
