Man caught on video 'performing sex act on dog' escapes jail time
Handed a four-month jail sentence suspended for two years at Skegness Magistrates' Court
A man who filmed himself having sex with his girlfriend's dog has avoided jail time.
Wayne Bryson, 19, of Harvey's Lane, Louth, admitted he penetrated his girlfriend's four-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier, Rudi, breaching the Sexual Offences Act.
Prosecuting solicitor Paul Wood said Lane's girlfriend found the 30-second video while looking for pictures of their child on his mobile phone.
He added:"The dog was shaking in a back and forwards motion. She could see a man's penis going in and out of the animal. The clip was about 30 seconds long."
Defence solicitor Gordon Holt said the teenager's life has been "swept away for 30 second of madness" and the consequences continue to blight his life.
His family has "disowned" him and his girlfriend Amber Hickling, 18, ended the relationship shortly after.
He added: "He was interviewed about the offence and he admitted he had penetrated the vagina of the dog and that he had video-ed it on his phone. He said it lasted 30 seconds and that he did not ejaculate."
Bryson was handed a four-month jail sentence suspended for two years by Skegness Magistrates’ Court and will be placed on the sex offenders' register for seven years.
He was also banned from owning animals for two years.
