A 51-year-old, man from Castlefields, Runcorn, who filmed his wife trying to have sex with their family dog has been jailed. The Runcorn and Widnes Weekly News reports.
Paul Riley, was sent down for 18 months, while Sandra Wilson was handed an adult caution.
According to police report, Riley’s video also featured the animal performing an intimate sex act on partner Wilson.
Rob James, prosecuting, told Chester Crown Court that in interview Riley told police “it was something he wanted to see happen”.
After being arrested on suspicion of trying to have sex with an animal, Wilson said “everybody was drunk” and that her husband “was always asking if she would have sex with a dog” but she had previously said “no”.
During the Sentencing, Judge Shetty said: “That was your wife. And you were operating the video camera and it appears from the media that you have an interest in beastiality and were prepared to fulfil that fantasy by using your wife and family dog to create a video that you would find sexually gratifying.”
He added: “You had pestered and worn down your wife into committing this offence.
“I accept while your wife’s participation couldn’t be described as under duress, it’s clear you were the prime mover in attempting to create this video.”
Police discovered the video while searching the property for evidence in relation to Riley’s son Carl, aged 23, who was being investigated for downloading indecent images of children including acquiring images of girls under 16 and who was later shown to have vile images of infants aged as young as four.
500 “extreme pornographic images” featuring beastiality were also discovered on Riley’s computer during the search.
Riley pleaded guilty to six counts; possession of extreme pornographic images, encouraging his wife to have sexual intercourse with a dog, and possession of 57 indecent images of children in categories A, B and C.
