Kenneth C. Fenske, 57, of Old Bethlehem Pike, was found not guilty following two hours of deliberations and a four-day jury trial in Doylestown, in which his defense attorney, Steven Fairlie, pointed to inconsistencies in the boy’s testimony and questioned whether the allegations against him were part of a scheme by the boy’s family to profit in civil court from his client’s wealth, the newspaper reported.

Being a furry involves dressing up as an animal and is a sexual fetish for some but not all people.

Charges are reportedly still pending against other individuals who Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro said were part of a child sex abuse network when the allegations against Fenske–who had been charged with first-degree felony child rape, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and unlawful contact with a minor–were first announced nearly a year ago.
