Ex-cop cannot be prosecuted for sex with cow
Imagine being this guy’s lawyer? Former Moorestown police officer Robert Melia Jr. was charged last year with sexually assaulting three girls. During the investigation, police allegedly found a video in his house that showed him sexually molesting cows in 2006. There is no indication as to who held the camera.
Judge James Morley in Burlington dismissed the charges on Wednesday holding that the State did not present enough evidence to jurors that his alleged actions tormented the animals on a Southampton farm. However, Judge Morley made clear that he doesn’t think the alleged action is OK.
The case mooves (sorry, couldn’t help it) on with Melia and former girlfriend Heather Lewis still charged with molesting the three girls.
