Zack Perry tries to avoid getting his picture taken after being found guilty.

Perry's face
Former Muskogee firefighter clown Zackery Perry, 31, has pleaded guilty to possession and distribution of child pornography, sexual abuse of a child and bestiality for having sex with his dog.

Judge Thomas Alford found him guilty just now.

Perry was caught with more than 3,000 child porn images in his possession. In addition, he was able to talk a six-year-old girl’s mother into letting the girl stay over a weekend with him with the express purpose of committing sexual acts with her.

Melissa Skelton, the little girl’s mother, agreed to cooperate with prosecutors in exchange for a 30-year sentence, of which she must serve a minimum of 85 percent in prison.

He was found guilty of conspiracy, possession of child pornography, distribution of child pornography, child sexual abuse and bestiality. By pleading guilty, he is admitting to his guilt in all the charges, including the sex with the little girl and with his Rottweiler. He was in possession of multiple images of himself and other people having sex with the dog.

Most of his convictions carry an 85 percent clause with them, meaning whatever sentence he is dealt, Perry will have to serve at the very least 85 percent of those sentences before he can even be considered for parole.

Alford informed him he could be sentenced up to 10 years for the conspiracy conviction, up to life on the aggravated possession of child pornography conviction, up to life on the sexual exploitation of a child conviction, from three to 20 years on the distribution of child pornography conviction and up to 10 years on the bestiality conviction, and he will be required to register as a sex offender, should he ever be released from prison.

He is due back in court April 23 for sentencing.

UPDATE Feb. 27: The sentencing has been moved to April 30, according to District Attorney Orvil Loge.
