A woman said to have repeatedly had sex with a pit bull says the act has ruined her life. Jenna Louise Driscoll, 27, was arraigned for bestiality before a Brisbane District Court, Queensland, Australia, but her emotional plea saved her from jail.
Judge Terry Martin rather gave Driscoll a probation order on the charge of having sexual intercourse with the dog.
The judge said he found Driscoll was lured into the act to help her boyfriend get an arousal.
“You were clearly a willing participant in acts of sexual intercourse with the dog,” the judge said. A psychologist report on Driscoll – in which she claimed “This has ruined my life. I very much regret what I have done – was read out during the court trial.
Driscoll, who has had a troubled childhood and adulthood was said to be dealing in Cannabis.
Driscoll’s lawyer James Godbolt said his client had gone from a highly dysfunctional childhood to a highly dysfunctional relationship that lasted about six years.
She had been affected by the public shaming of the bestiality charge and had stopped attending classes at the University of Southern Queensland, the lawyer said.
But Judge Terry Martin said: “It might be a sad reflection on society that the bestiality attracts more publicity whereas the serious offence of trafficking cannabis does not.
“It rather undermines the factor of general deterrence.”
Brisbane District Court heard that Driscoll ran away from home when she was 16, started a relationship with a man 12 years older and started smoking cannabis when she was 18.
Driscoll pleaded guilty to bestiality, drug trafficking, stabbing another woman with a fork and twice biting a child.
The prosecution said Driscoll had 15 regular customers and six suppliers and also a phone purely for the purpose of selling drugs.
She was convicted of stabbing a woman with a fork and biting a child, causing minor injuries.
Driscoll was handed a two-and-a-half-year suspended jail sentence for drug trafficking.
