Brisbane Woman Guilty Of Sex With Dog, Drugs, Walks Free
A Brisbane woman who pleaded guilty to having sex with her dog, as well as drug trafficking, has walked free from court.
Judge Terry Martin sentenced Jenna Louise Driscoll, 27, to two-and-a-half years' probation for three counts of bestiality, which he described as "repugnant", and a wholly suspended two-and-a-half year jail term for trafficking.
Driscoll must undergo psychological and psychiatric treatment during her probationary period and not leave the state without the consent of her probationary officer.
The 27-year-old burst into tears on Friday when she was told she would spend the weekend behind bars.
She was arrested as a result of a 2014 drug investigation after which police also discovered video of the sex acts on her phone and charged her with bestiality.
On Friday, the Brisbane District Court heard the acts were an attempt to arouse her partner.
Brisbane District Court Judge Terry Martin wanted more time to consider Driscoll's public shaming before handing down the sentence today.
He said her behaviour was "completely against the order of nature" but it was "a sad reflection on society" that the bestiality charge attracted more publicity than the serious offence of drug trafficking.
Driscoll was also charged with stabbing another woman with a fork and biting a child on two separate occasions.
