A former mixed-martial arts instructor charged with sexually assaulting three teenagers is facing a new charge for allegedly sexually abusing a dog.

State police charged William Kenneth Bosley Jr., 49, with a misdemeanor count of sexual intercourse with an animal Tuesday.

According to the affidavit of probable cause, investigators discovered a video Bosley allegedly sent to an adult female of a sex act between himself and a dog on Aug. 24, 2017. Police said the dog was “known to Bosley.”

He was charged in December with hundreds of felony counts for allegedly sexually abusing three teenagers who were members of his former gym, Uniontown Fight Club. The alleged abuse spanned 2010 to 2017 and included victims who ranged from 14 to 17 at the times the alleged assaults began. In one case, he allegedly said if a teenager reported he sexually assaulted her, he would “put a bullet between her eyes.” Police also allegedly found a cache of guns and steroids in his Coddington Place home. He is a convicted felon and cannot legally possess a gun following a 2001 drug trafficking conviction.

The Herald-Standard does not identify those who allege they are victims of sexual assault.

Bosley is awaiting trial in the three previous sexual abuse cases and for a case filed on the drugs and weapons.

Uniontown Fight Club immediately removed Bosley as an instructor when the allegations came to light. Since then, they replaced the sign which named him as owner and changed the name of the facility. A current instructor called the victims “heroes” during a previous interview, saying the club supports the victims, who are now adults.

The women testified previously they joined the club to learn how to defend themselves.

Bail was not set in the new case because it is a misdemeanor. Bosley remains in Fayette County Prison in lieu of bail set in his previous cases. He is represented by private attorney Benjamin Goodwin of Uniontown.
