The accusations against Kevin Christopher Billups are repugnant. A man who is reported to be a teaching assistant for kindergartners has been found with hundreds of child pornography images, and he is accused of performing sexual acts with his own dog.

Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said, “Investigators immediately got a search warrant for Billups’ home and found evidence linking his home with that video. We also found an external hard drive containing hundreds of images and videos of child pornography.” 

As reported by Fits News, Billups filmed himself having vaginal and anal sex with a Great Dane that he referred to as "Leia." In an interview, he allegedly admitted to having “extensive sexual interactions with his dog."

South Carolina Code of Laws, buggery is a felony offense punishable by five years in prison or a fine of no less than $500 or both. Third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor is a felony offense punishable by up to 10 years in prison. Please join us as we petition the court to forcefully address these charges. Billups must not receive a plea deal!

Note: Billups was booked into the Lexington County Detention Center and his dog was taken to an animal welfare center for care. 

Individuals are presumed innocent until being found guilty in a court of law.
