Rape and related charges against a man accused of raping a child at “furry parties” while dressed in a fox costume will proceed to trial, a district judge ruled Monday.


Kenneth Fenske, 57, of Quakertown appeared at a hearing in Perkasie, where the boy, now 15, testified that the man had taken him upstairs during the parties and sexually assaulted him three or four times during the summer of 2009.

Prosecutors say the rapes involved a ring of men who allegedly abused the boy over a number of years. Four others also have been charged with various sexual offenses. None have yet entered pleas.





Fenske’s attorney, Steven Fairlie, said his client maintains his innocence and the charges against him were an effort to profit off his wealth.

The accusation “does have all the hallmarks of a money grab,” Fairlie said after the hearing.

The boy said in court that Fenske went by the name “Lupine” and wore a full-body fox suit with “a head, feet, tail.” His parents were present at the parties, but the teen said he had never told anyone about the assaults until a couple of months ago.




“I was very proud of how brave” the boy was in testifying, said Chief Deputy Attorney General Michele Walsh. The case is being prosecuted by the Attorney General’s Office.

Fenske appeared wearing a navy suit with a red patterned tie. He will be arraigned on June 9 in Doylestown.
