A Pinal County couple pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit bestiality in a case where Craigslist was used.

Shane Walker, 38, and Sarah Dae Walker, 33, entered the plea in Maricopa County Superior Court on Tuesday.

They were arrested Feb. 27 along with Robert A. Aucker, 29, of Gilbert, after trying to use the website Craigslist.com to find a dog for the woman to have sex with, according to Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

The three allegedly contacted an undercover deputy for the services of a male, golden shepherd canine mix.

Shane Walker was a flight attendant, Sarah Walker a self-employed photographer and Aucker a car salesman, according to a news release.

Sgt. Brandon Jones said the Walkers described themselves as "swingers" who enjoy an "open marriage." Aucker told detectives he and Sarah Walker have had a sexual relationship for the last month and that she shared with him dreams of having sex with a dog.

"People who do this for enjoyment are a different breed, that's for certain," Arpaio said.

Detectives said the three drove to an agreed upon location and even offered the undercover detective and owner of the dog to join in the act.

In 2011, two similar cases involving Craigslist.com resulted in convictions, according to the release. Bestiality is illegal inArizona, but not in other states.

"I remain extremely disappointed in the leadership at Craigslist.com for refusing to do what they can to stop this," Arpaio said. "While they aren't doing anything to stop it, I will continue to enforce all animal cruelty laws."
