MAN IN ANIMAL CASE ARGUES HE SHOULDN'T HAVE TO REGISTER AS SEX OFFENDER.
BATTLE CREEK, Mich. - A man who pleaded no contest to a sodomy charge involving a sheep says he should not have to register as a sex offender.

Jeffrey S. Haynes said the state registry is intended to keep track of people wjo have committed crimes against humans.

But Valhoun Country Circuit Court Judge Conrad Sindt told Haynes at his sentencing hearing that once he is released from prison, he must register with the Michigan State Polic Public Sex Offender Registry.

Haynes, 42, of Battle Creek, was sentenced Monday to 2 1/2 years to 20 years in prison. A no contest plea is not an admission of guilt but is treated as such for sentencing purposes.

Tamara Towne, an assistant prosecutor for the county, argued that Haynes should be ordered to register as a sex offended because once out of prison, he could prey on children or vulnerable adults.

Haynes said he isnot a violent person and would not assault children.

"The prosecutor is being real hard on me for what I did", he said. "But I should not be treated as a child molester."

A telephone call seeking commment wasleft Tuesday at the Marshall office of defense attorney John B. Sullivan.

Police said Haynes had sex with a sheep at a Bedford Township farm on Jan. 26, 2005. The animal's owner caught him on the property and the sheep was found injured.

Haynes was arrested in June after a DNA sample taken from the animal matched Haynes genetic material.

Haynes has prior conviction for burglary, home invasion and uttering and publishing, and was on parole for burglary at the time of the sex crime.
