A MAN has admitted having sex with a dog and possessing dozens of images of bestiality.

John Goodier, of Spencer Street in Northwich, appeared at Chester Magistrates Court on Friday, October 22 where he pleaded guilty to a raft of charges.

In total, the 60-year-old, who now goes by the name of Claire, admitted to five charges, including one for the possession of seven half gram bags of cocaine.

The most serious of the charges related to one where Goodier allowed himself to be penetrated by a dog at an unspecified location in Bournemouth on December 15 and 16 2018.

He also admitted being in possession of 31 extreme pornographic images of a German Shephard dog having sex with a person, which were grossly offensive, disgusting or otherwise of an obscene character.

As well as admitting being in possession of other offensive images, Goodier also failed to comply with the notification requirements of the sex offenders register.

He pleaded guilty to a charge of failing to conduct his annual notification on November 5 last year.

Goodier has been released on conditional bail and will be sentenced at Chester Crown Court on November 19.
