Four Wisconsin men are facing a slew of child porn and bestiality charges.


Former Racine County Sheriff’s Deputy Preston Kite, 37, of Union Grove, has been charged with five counts of possession of child porn, five counts of child sexual exploitation, exposing intimate parts to a child, lewd and lascivious behavior, disorderly conduct, possessing bestiality material and engaging in sexual contact with an animal.


Former Outagamie County Human Resources Director Adam Westbrook, 34, of Neenah, has been charged in federal court with distribution of child pornography.


Jacob Boudreau, 30, of Appleton, who owns Show Worthy Pet Salon & Boutique in Menasha and regularly competes in AKC dog shows as a handler, has been charged with 12 counts of possession of child pornography.


Noah Thiel, 20, of Appleton, has been charged with engaging in bestiality, photographing bestiality, selling or publishing obscene material of sexual contact with an animal and possessing bestiality material.


According to the criminal complaints, the investigation began when a man reported to police that Kite, while on duty and in uniform, exposed himself in a public restroom Feb. 3.


Investigators searched Kite’s phone which revealed videos of child sexual assault material and an iPad with videos of people engaging in sex acts with animals. Investigators also found messages Kite sent, allegedly admitting to sexual contact with a dog and a cow.


This led investigators to Westbrook, who allegedly recorded videos of a prepubescent naked male child engaging in sexually explicit conduct in a hotel in Lake Delton in January and sent them to Kite.


Westbrook also received explicit photos and videos from Boudreau through Snapchat. Documents say the pair were acquainted because Boudreau grooms Westbrook's dog. Boudreau was also acquainted with Kite.


A search of Boudreau’s phone allegedly revealed numerous videos of child pornography and bestiality, including a video of Boudreau performing a sex act on a dog and a video of another man sexually assaulting the same dog.

An Australian shepherd named Charlie was allegedly victimized by Thiel, who sent videos of the abuse to Boudreau.

Charlie the dog is a victim of bestiality.


Also located were videos Boudreau received from Thiel, who is his roommate, of Thiel engaging in sexual acts with Boudreau’s dog, Charlie. Thiel allegedly admitted to engaging in sexual contact with the dog in early February.


While executing a search warrant at the Appleton residence where Boudreau and Thiel lived, investigators noted unsanitary conditions including numerous piles of dried urine and feces throughout the living room, dining room, and upstairs bedrooms. 


“The urine and feces had been there for a long period of time, some of which were embedded into the carpet materials,” the criminal complaint notes. “Two dogs were free roaming throughout the interior while two other dogs were located in wire kennels in the dining room area.”


Fox Valley Humane Association removed the dogs from the home. The owner of the rental property has filed to evict Boudreau.


Kite, Boudreau and Thiel remain incarcerated. As part of bond conditions, the men are not to have contact with minors or animals. Westbrook was released on bail this week with standard conditions including GPS monitoring and undergoing a mental health and sex offender assessment.
