Samantha Golt and her boyfriend James Crow had a preliminary hearing Friday for their case in bestiality, where Golt had sex with a dog and Crow photographed it.
Samantha L. Golt, 24, and James P. Crow, 25, were each charged with one count of felony bestiality and one count of felony second-degree conspiracy.
According to Golt's Facebook page she is the owner of three dogs, including pit bulls and pit bull mixes. She is also the mother of a 4-year-old girl.
Police say the sexual acts occurred in the woman's home and that her boyfriend was also arrested for taking photos. The investigation began last month when troopers received a "canine abuse tip" from a concerned neighbor on Dec. 28, Delaware State Police Master Corporal Gary E. Fournier told The Huffington Post via email. Authorities believe the offense occurred in Golt's Wilford, Del. home sometime between August 31, 2012 and December 29, 2012.
Police confirmed Golt's identity when Crow’s photographs were removed from the home as evidence and comapred to her driver’s license photo.
On Wednesday, state police issued the couple an order to have no contact with any animal, Delaware State News reported. Authorities contacted the Kent County SPCA when the investigation began.
Golt and Crow were released after posting $12,000 bail apiece. According to NBC10 Philadelphia, Golt refused to comment when contacted Friday morning.
Golt allegedly hung up on a reporter when contacted at her home early Friday morning. A preliminary hearing was scheduled for today in the Kent County Court of Common Pleas in Dover.
