A 56-year-old man will be spending nine months behind bars after being convicted for a range of disturbing sexual acts – including with his own pet dog. According to StokeonTrentLive, Dean Beer, a UK man, recorded himself having sex with his dog then unashamedly sent the video to someone on Facebook Messenger.
But that’s not all: Beer is also said to have uploaded illegal child sexual abuse images on to the internet. When he was arrested, he was found to be in possession of inappropriate pictures of underage girls and movies of women having sex with horses and dogs.
BEER HAD ‘AN UNHEALTHY AND DEPRAVED INTEREST IN BESTIALITY’
The footage of Dean Beer “having sex” with his dog was discovered by police who had been sent to his home in Stoke-on-Trent, a city in central Britain. They had reportedly received information about an inappropriate image being uploaded online.
The local court hearing the matter was told how the man had an “unhealthy and depraved interest in bestiality”. Prosecutor Maria Brannan said when officers recovered his phone after entering his home in July 2020, they found a treasure trove of evidence on the device: Sexual images featuring girls aged 13 to 15, three extreme pornographic images and six still and two moving images of sexual activity with dogs and a horse.
Brannan said: “The search term ‘dog porn’ was used six times. A conversation was found on Facebook Messenger between the defendant, ‘Taffy Dean’, and a person who has not been arrested.The conversation concerned sexual abuse of the defendant’s dog. The other person encouraged the defendant to film himself performing a penetrative sex act on his dog. The defendant did the act and sent the film to the other person.”
Beer’s lawyer Andrew Molloy pleaded with presiding Judge David Fletcher to suspend the sentence, but the judge an immediate prison term was the appropriate punishment for his client.
“He is quite embarrassed about his conduct. He says it is out of character for him to behave in this way. It is almost two years since and he has not been involved in any trouble. He has self-referred to a mental health institution and is engaging well,” he said.
As part of his conviction, Beer was also made the subject of a Sexual Harm Prevention Order (SHPO) and was placed on the sex offenders’ register for the same period. The judge also ordered the forfeiture and destruction of the seized phone.
