PHOENIX -- A Mesa man who pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit bestiality was sentenced Friday to 18 months of probation.

Craig James Naylor, 47, was arrested in August following an undercover operation by the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies said they contacted 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 and was arrested.
