A GOLD Coast woman who pleaded guilty to having sex with her lover’s dog has had her conviction set aside in a bid to obtain a blue card.
The 22-year-old pleaded guilty to bestiality in May 2014, with a judge deciding to record a conviction in the community’s interests as the then-university student had a desire to work with children.
The young woman is alleged to have responded to an advertisement seeking women to perform sexual acts over the internet on a classifieds site last year.

The man and woman engaged in sexual activity when the man is then alleged to have called his dog into the bedroom during the intimate session and filmed the woman engaging in a sex act with the canine.
In the Queensland Court of Appeal today, they found the judge made a mistake as to the recorded conviction, with Justice David Jackson noting the woman “made a very poor choice which she plainly regrets”.
“Her ill-conceived and tawdry sexual adventure has resulted in some public embarrassment and other consequences associated with being prosecuted for an indictable offence,” Justice Jackson said.
