Man enters plea in horse-sex case

An Enumclaw-area man has pleaded guilty to criminal trespass Tuesday in a case in which a Seattle man died having sex with a horse.

On July 2, James Tait and a 45-year-old Seattle man went onto a neighbor's property to have sex with a horse, charging papers say. The Seattle man sustained a perforated colon and died from his injuries.

Authorities say Tait helped run a nearby farm where people had sex with animals.

Tait, 54, was given a one-year suspended sentence on condition he pay a $300 fine, perform eight hours of community service and have no contact with the horse owners. The horse owners told a reporter over the summer that police showed them a home video of the July 2 incident that investigators seized from Tait's home.

The couple identified their barn and their horse.
