Man in branding case accused of bestiality

A Chandler man was arrested last week on charges he branded his initials on his girlfriend's private area. We've learned he's in more trouble.

While searching the man's home, deputies say they found videos that show the man and two women engaging in sex acts with a dog.

"Yeah, it's disgusting, it's against the law too," said Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is reacting to a recent arrest made in the valley.

MCSO arrested this man, Christopher Lynn Jackson, on charges of bestiality.

"Christopher utilized his dog, and two females there separately had various sexual contact with the German shepherd dog assisted by the male," said Arpaio.

This all stems from Jackson's previous run-in with the law when he was arrested for allegedly branding a female companion with his initials, using a branding tool and a butane torch.

That investigation led deputies to the video with the disturbing images involving this German shepherd, now in the care of the sheriff's office.

Also in the video -- 61-year-old Josephine Erikson. She too faces charges.

The sheriff says the other female in the video has not yet been identified.

"Nothing surprises me in my 50 years of law enforcement around the world. However this is somewhat unusual."

According to the sheriff's office, Jackson owns a lawn care business, as well as a ballroom dancing studio in Mesa. Sheriff Joe is promising to prosecute these three.

"I call this animal cruelty," added Arpaio. "That dog was forced to participate."

The dog will be cared for at Sheriff Joe's MASH unit at the Maricopa County Jail until the court proceedings have finished.
