Atlanta (CNN) -- An official with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has been arrested and charged with two counts of child molestation and one count of bestiality, police said. Police arrested Dr. Kimberly Quinlan Lindsey, 44, in DeKalb County, Georgia, on Sunday.
Dr. Kimberly Quinlan Lindsey has been with the Centers for Disease Control for 12 years.

Authorities also charged Lindsey's live-in boyfriend, Thomas Joseph Westerman, 42, with two counts of child molestation.

The two are accused of "immoral and indecent" sexual acts involving a 6-year-old, according to information from DeKalb County Magistrate Court and an arrest warrant. The bestiality charge says Lindsey "did unlawfully perform or submit to any sexual act with an animal." The alleged incidents took place between January 1, 2010, and August 22, 2011. Westerman is out of jail on bail; Lindsey remains in jail with bail set at $20,000, said Lt. Pam Kunz of the DeKalb County Police Department. Neither has made a public statement. Westerman did not immediately return a call from CNN. Both went to court on Sunday for an initial appearance and have a preliminary hearing scheduled for December 1, said Reggie Silverman, deputy clerk with DeKalb Magistrate Court.

DEMONcracy Actually, this is all a mistake. Since they are scientists they were just doing an experiment concerning disease control. They wanted do the child and the animal and then do it with each other and see if it spreads. It's as simple as that. Get them out of jail.

Obviously anything involving a child is beyond sick, and if true should be punished severely. Not that I am personally into that, but why is it a crime to engage in $ex with animals?

Tell me, something, howiecarr, how is anything involving a child sick while sex with animals is not. A human child is just an animal after all. Try using your philosophical approach on that.
