A 21-year-old farm worker from Wisconsin who was caught having sex with a female donkey is headed to jail -- after asking a judge to revoke his more lenient initial sentence.

Gideon Swartzentruber was originally only ordered to spend a year on probation, undergo counseling and pay a $443 fine after confessing to the sordid sexual encounter at a barn in Neillsville in September, according to the Marshfield News Herald.

Swartzentruber was caught by the donkey's owner, and reportedly told investigators that his "privates were out of control" and that he "got crazy and carried away."

He faced nine months in jail and a $10,000 fine after pleading guilty at Clark County Circuit Court in November. But the final penalty handed down ended up being much less severe.

Swartzentruber, who was representing himself, returned to the court Wednesday and asked Judge Jon Counsell to revoke the sentence and instead lock him up, according to court records.

He didn't detail the reason for his request. But the judge agreed, and Swartzentruber was ordered to spend 30 days behind bars.

Clark County Assistant District Attorney Kerra Stumbris told the Marshfield News Herald that Swartzentruber must report to jail by 5 p.m. Monday, but will be allowed to leave for work.
