PHOENIX -- A Mesa man has admitted to using the website Craigslist.com to try to have sex with a dog.

Craig James Naylor, 47, entered a guilty plea Thursday to a charge of conspiracy to commit bestiality. He is due back in court on November 16 for sentencing.

Naylor was arrested back in August following an undercover operation by the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies came in contact with Naylor through Craigslist, and spent two months exchanging emails about a dog.

Naylor eventually agreed to meet up with deputies to have sex with the dog, but he was arrested before the animal was brought into the room.

Naylor isn’t the only person who has used Craigslist to try to commit bestiality.

Several people have been arrested and convicted in the past two years for using the website to locate animals.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has written letters to Craigslist's CEO asking that the company work harder to make sure that people aren’t using the site to commit illegal acts.
