Valley couple sentenced in bestiality casePosted: Updated:
A San Tan Valley couple has been sentenced to probation in a bestiality case and ordered to stay away from animals.
Shane Walker and Sarah Dae Walker had pleaded guilty in June to conspiracy to commit bestiality.
They were arrested on February 27, along with Robert A. Aucker of Gilbert, after trying to use the website Craigslist.org to find a dog for the woman to have sex with. The three allegedly contacted an undercover deputy for the services of a male, golden shepherd canine mix.
Detectives said the three drove to an agreed upon location and even offered the undercover detective, and owner of the dog, to join in the act.
The Walkers have described themselves as "swingers" who enjoy an "open marriage." Aucker told detectives he and Sarah Walker have had a sexual relationship for the last month and that she shared with him dreams of having sex with a dog.
Sarah Walker was sentenced Thursday to two years of supervised probation, while Shane Walker received 18 months of supervised probation.
