CLEARFIELD COUNTY, Pa. (EYT) – Three Pennsylvania men accused of having sex on a regular basis with several animals will be sentenced next month.

Court documents indicate that 33-year-old Matthew Brubaker, 41-year-old Terry Wallace, and 35-year-old Marc Measnikoff, all of Clearfield County, will be sentenced by Judge Paul E. Cherry on April 23.

They are each facing more than 1,400 misdemeanor counts of sexual intercourse with an animal in addition to a slew of charges related to cruelty of animals, endangering the welfare of children, and corruption of minors.

According to the Clearfield County District Attorney’s office, the child endangerment charges were filed due to a teenager living on the Munson area “makeshift farm” at the time of the incidents.

The farm is owned jointly by the defendants.

A criminal complaint filed in Clearfield County District Court indicates that a witness told police that the men were having sex on a regular basis with horses, a goat, a cow, and dogs. The encounters occurred over the course of four to five years, according to the documents.

Some of the acts were recorded, according to the criminal complaint.

The criminal complaint states that Wallace was “mostly into having sexual intercourse with dogs, but had also had sexual intercourse with horses and a goat.”

According to the criminal complaint, Brubaker admitted that he had sex with every female horse and also with a goat, a cow, and a dog. He told police that he has had sex with an animal at least once per day for the last “four or five years.”

Measnikoff reportedly admitted to having sexual intercourse with multiple horses, several times per week.

The three men were living in campers on the property at the time.

State Police and the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals collaborated to place the animals with new owners.

The trio remain incarcerated in the Clearfield County Jail.

I am more than pleased with my experience with attorney Hackwelder. He is knowledgeable and got us a great result. I would highly recommend hiring Attorney Hackwelder.


I have many good things to say about Mr. Hackwelder and his team. From the beginning he came to our aid last minute and were good at keeping open lines of communication with me and my family. They worked on our case up to the last possible moment and even met with me on weekends. He answered all my questions throughout the whole process, was polite and did not waste time. The case was an extremely hard one, and the legal system was a bear to work with, but Mr. Hackwelder showed up every time with lots of energy and a positive attitude. He never promised what could not be done, but our results were extremely positive, in part to his hard work and constant attention to important details. I highly recommend him and his team. Mr. Hackwelder, I believe, went above and beyond the call of duty in our unique circumstance.


I was charged with theft by extortion, a 3rd degree felony which carries a possible sentence of 7 years in prison and 15,000 in fines. Against my better judgement, I took the advice of Stephen and pled guilty for a reduced sentence. Because I listened to his expert advice, I will serve NO prison time, NO jail time, and my fine was minimal. Thanks again Stephen for a tough uphill battle, and you never gave up.


Attorney Sebald represented me in 2005 for a DUI. So when I was facing legal problems again in 2015 for getting 3 DUI's in a 5 month period due to an addiction to alcohol I knew I needed him to represent me again. Mr. Sebald truly cares about his clients. I met with him we discussed my case and what I was facing. He guided me on what I should do. He doesn't sugar coat things. Mr. Sebald is honest with you from the beginning and will do everything he can to get the best possible outcome. I was facing some pretty serious consequences and through his advice, guidance and representation I not only was able to avoid Jail time but also get help for my problem with alcohol. I truly believe if it weren't for him I would not be where I am today. After hiring Attorney Sebald he traveled to Lycoming county to represent me for my preliminary hearing and sentencing. He called and spoke with the D.A., judges as well as other attorneys in that area. He also represented me here in Erie county for my preliminary hearing as well as sentencing. He does his research. I would strongly recommend Mr Sebald to anyone who needs legal representation.


Because I listened to his expert advice, I will serve NO prison time, NO jail time, and my fine was minimal. Thanks again Stephen for a tough uphill battle, and you never gave up.

Stephen is a very knowledgeable lawyer! I got a DUI with a BAC of 2.16 and walked away with only 6 months probation and didn't lose my license! I can't thank this man enough! Thank you Stephen for all the hard work you put into my case!


I hired Eric for someone who was facing serious felony charges. He is a fairly young man with a young child who he absolutely adores. He had made mistakes and I didn't feel he needed to go to jail and be separated from that child. Eric was extremely helpful and actually, you could tell that he took this case personally because of all of the time and effort he put into the case. He was always available to us and his family. When it came time for the sentencing we all thought he was going to jail. When the judge sentenced him to 3 years parole we were all extremely happy. I can not say enough good things to say about Eric.


We were extremely satisfied with Attorney Sebald and Attorney Hackwelder. Highly recommend. You want that piece of mind when you get into legal trouble call these guys. You won't be disappointed.


Stephen Sebald far exceeded my expectations. As a result of trusting in his extensive knowledge of the law & him working diligently on my case, charges were substantially reduced. He was always on call & went above & beyond in my case. Excellent defense attorney!


Mr. Sebald is honest with you from the beginning and will do everything he can to get the best possible outcome.
