Identity disguised to protect the innocent

Repeat offender repeats again
In May, Jack R. Blanke, 39 of Quincy was arrested after repeatedly trespassing on a farm to have sex with a horse there - at least a dozen times. The owners had seen signs that Blanke was entering the propety illegally and the police finally advised they put up a surveillance camera in the barn.
Officers conducting a stationary patrol finally caught Blanke in the act. He could be seen standing on a five-gallon bucket feeding apples to the mare (a female horse) and penetrating the horse's vagina.
Blanke was arrested and charged with misdemeanor criminal trespassing and felony unlawful sex with an animal. His defense attorney asked that he be released on a reduced bond because Blanke was
"as low risk as anybody could possibly come". Blanke was released pending trial and told to stay away from the farm where he sexually assaulted the horse.
Blanke was later offered a plea deal that allowed him to plead guilty to criminal property damage. The bestiality charges were dropped. He was sentenced to 90 days in jail, 24 months' probation (with credit for the 90 days), and ordered to have a mental health exam. Blanke told the judge he would give his attorney a "five-star rating".
On July 23, Blanke was arrested again for trespassing after Adams County deputies found him near horses with his genitals exposed.
