Alabama woman sentenced to nearly 100 years in prison for sodomy, bestiality convictions


Holly Renae Debord, 36 of  Albertville

MARSHALL COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) — A woman from Albertville has been sentenced to nearly 100 years in prison after being pleading guilty to several charges, including sodomy and bestiality.

On Tuesday, Holly DeBord was sentenced to 99.5 years in prison; two concurrent 99-year terms for different felony charges, and six months for the bestiality charge.

Holly Debord previously pleaded guilty to two felonies and a misdemeanor back in July.

All charges stem from an incident that happened in Guntersville in 2020 involving Debord and 53-year-old Van Christopher Havis.

Investigators told News 19 that a video was shared with community members through Facebook messenger, text messages, and e-mail.

Marshall County District Attorney Everette Johnson said at the time that it was, “one of the most disturbing and offensive, the facts of this case as I’ve been involved in criminal law for a long time.”

As part of a plea deal, other charges Debord was facing were dropped.
