PHOENIX – A Chandler man has been sentenced in a bestiality case.
Christopher Jackson, 49, was sentenced to three years of supervised probation for two counts of bestiality and a misdemeanor count of possession of drug paraphernalia.
Jackson and two women were accused of engaging in sex acts with a dog, according to Maricopa County sheriff's officials.
The bestiality investigation began after Jackson was arrested last September on aggravated assault charges in another case. Jackson allegedly branded his initials on his then-girlfriend's genitals.
Investigators reported finding a branding tool and butane torch in his home along with videos of the three suspects with a dog.
