GRAND RAPIDS, Mich — A Cedar Springs man is in jail charged with repeatedly sodomizing a dog.

Charles Ralph Horton faces charges that he performed sex acts with a Labrador/German Shepherd mix between August and November 2012 in Grand Rapids.

Because this is Horton’s fourth offense, he also faces charges of being a habitual offender.

The police report did not say how authorities came to become aware of Horton’s activities or who owned the dog.

A list of Horton’s prior convictions was given to FOX 17 News.

Here’s what it revealed:
