Oregon Man Sentenced to 60 Days for Raping Fiancee’s Small Dog

PORTLAND, OR. – An Oregon man will serve only 60 days in jail for sexually abusing his then fiancee’s small dog leading to injuries which required the dog to be euthanized.

Fidel Lopez, 52, admitted to first-degree aggravated animal abuse and sexual assault of an animal. Prosecutors from the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office said that Lopez was sentenced to the maximum penalty that the law allowed on Monday. They also stated that the time served in addition to his lack of a criminal history played into the short sentence.

“If it could have been more, I would have gladly given you more,” the judge said during the sentencing. In addition to the 60 days in jail, Lopez will be required to be on probation for 36 months.

The press release stated that Lopez admitted to torturing the Lhasa Apso mix, named Estrella for the purpose of sexual gratification. On February 13, 2019, Lopez was arrested following an investigation into the injuries sustained by the small dog. The injuries became known when the dog’s owner took the dog to the veterinarian fearing that Lopez had raped the small dog. The veterinarian determined that the small dog had been sexually assaulted causing extensive internal injuries.

It was confirmed that Lopez, did, in fact, sexually assault the dog through forensic evidence. Lopez will not be allowed to own a dog for a period of 15 years and must seek treatment for his abuse of animals, prosecutors said.
