A woman from Kent is facing 16 months behind bars for having sex with a dog.
Tracy Woolridge, from Canterbury, was arrested after police found illegal images at a house in the town.
Tracey Woolridge pleaded guilty to two charges of intercourse with an animal and sexual activity with a child at Canterbury Crown Court
Woolridge, of The Close, Downs Road, pleaded guilty to two charges of intercourse with an animal but initially denied sexual activity with a child.
Her barrister Alex Rooke asked a judge at Canterbury Crown Court for a ‘Goodyear’ indication as to the probably length of sentence for a guilty plea, a local paper reports.
Judge Adele Williams told her she faced a maximum of 16 months in jail for all three offences – and Woolridge, aged 45, then changed her plea to guilty for the charge relating to child sex activity.
In the dock next to her was Gary Underhill, 35, of Duck Lane, Canterbury, who admitted 10 charges of possessing and taking more than 200 indecent images of children.
He also pleaded guilty to seven charges of possessing pornographic images involving animals.
Underhill also admitted three counts of aiding and abetting Woolridge to have sexual activity with a child and animals.
The court heard that police found the illegal photographs and movie images at Underhill’s home – which then led officers to raid Woolridge’s home.
