“This man is a deranged psycho; who for the protection of all should be behind bars! Yet a Judge denies new evidence via DNA?? WHY…will it include more work for this case & interfere with the judges weekend?? WTF…just who the hell are we trying to protect here? This monster deserves no rights, let alone being able to deny a search warrant…some of the laws we have are just pathetic & let bastards like this get away with murder!!”

CROWN POINT, Ind. — Lake Superior Court Judge Diane Ross Boswell denied a request by the state for a DNA sample of a Lowell, Ind., man charged with theft, bestiality, killing a domestic animal and torturing or mutilating a vertebrate animal.

Boswell told deputy prosecutor Mark Watson that he must obtain a search warrant to get a new DNA sample, called a buccal swab, from Michael Charles Bessigano, 42.

Defense attorney Casey McCloskey said if the defendant objects to providing the DNA sample, a search warrant is required based on case law.”Object? WTF…he shouldn’t have such rights after what he has done…are we protecting animals or those that abuse them??

In the four Lake Superior Court felony division courtrooms, DNA sample requests are routinely granted without a search warrant being issued.

Watson said prosecutors already have a DNA sample from one of Bessigano’s prior cases dating back four or five years. Watson told the judge that if the case goes to trial, jurors might wonder what Bessigano did in the previous case, and he was unsure of the condition of the DNA sample and its packaging from the prior case.

The judge gave Watson the opportunity to file a brief citing case law on the issue.

Boswell agreed to order evaluations by two mental health professionals to determine if Bessigano is competent to stand trial.

He was charged earlier this month after authorities in November discovered a Guinea hen that had been sexually assaulted and killed at Buckley Homestead County Park. Several animals have been missing from the park since July.
