    An Aurora man will spend up to six months in jail for engaging
    in sex acts with his dog, and the dog will be euthanized because
    it has become aggressive after being removed from the abusive

    An Arapahoe County judge on Tuesday sentenced Frederick
    Manzanares, 51, to six months in jail and two years of
    supervised probation for participating in sex acts with the dog
    and his former girlfriend. Manzanares pleaded guilty to two
    counts of misdemeanor animal cruelty in September.

    And, Bubba, the male Akita mix who also goes by Biscuit, was to
    be euthanized Tuesday afternoon, said Michael Bryant, a
    spokesman for the city of Aurora.

    Bubba had been living at the Aurora Animal Shelter since
    authorities took custody of him this summer. The dog has become
    progressively aggressive at the shelter, Arapahoe County Deputy
    District Attorney Amy Ferrin said at the hearing.

    “Bubba is not doing well at all,” Ferrin said.

    Judge Cheryl Rowles-Stokes considered the fate of Bubba in her
    sentencing decision, she said.

    “This dog cannot safely be adopted,” Rowles-Stokes said at the
    hearing before reading her sentence. “This dog cannot safely be

    “This dog cannot recover,” she said.

    Manzanares, dressed in a dark suit, spoke in the courtroom
    before Rowles-Stokes read the sentence. He said that he now
    recognized that the sex acts were wrong and that he didn’t mean
    to harm the dog.

    “I know those desires are morally wrong and they will never
    manifest themselves again,” he said.

    Manzanares also asked if he could be allowed to work with Bubba
    to help rehabilitate the dog for any potential adopter. His
    voice cracked as he spoke about Bubba.

    Instead, Rowles-Stokes forbid Manzanares from owning, caring for
    or cohabiting with any animals during his probation. He will
    also complete treatment for his deviant sexual behavior as part
    of his sentence.

    In a letter to the Arapahoe County District Attorney’s Office,
    the animal shelter manager said the city also had charged
    Manzanares in municipal court for allowing a dog to run at-large
    and for keeping an aggressive dog.

    When Manzanares surrendered Bubba to animal control in July he
    told officers that he had concerns about the officers’ safety in
    handling the dog. The manager, Jenee Shipman, gave Manzanares
    permission to go to the shelter to help officers vaccinate and
    place a collar and identification tag on Bubba.

    “The dog has exhibited unpredictable behavior, and shows signs
    of aggression towards veterinary services staff, volunteers,
    community service workers and staff members that the dog is not
    especially familiar with (staff who clean, fee, provide
    enrichment and treats daily,” Shipman’s letter said.

    Shipman went on to say, “It is my opinion this dog is not a safe
    adoption candidate or transfer candidate based on the history,
    kennel behavior and continued increase in aggression observed

    Manzanares’ former girlfriend and co-defendant, Janette Solano,
    pleaded guilty to one count of animal cruelty and received a 24-
    month deferred judgement and sentence, meaning she will not be
    convicted or serve jail time unless she violates the courts’
    restrictions during the two-year period.

    Ferrin, the prosecutor, requested that Manzanares be sentenced
    to 18 months in jail — the maximum penalty — for the first count
    of animal abuse and five years supervised probation for the
    second. Manzanares’ attorney, Christopher Decker, asked the
    judge to consider a deferred sentence like the one Solano
    received. Decker said it would be an act of gender bias if
    Manzanares received a harsher penalty than Solano and alleged
    the two were equal participants in the crimes.

    Solano called police in March 2017 to report a domestic violence
    incident. When Aurora police officers arrived, she told them
    that she and Manzanares had been arguing and that she was
    leaving him because he had been pressuring her to have sex with
    the dog.

    Solano told police that Manzanares had sent her videos and
    literature about bestiality for six months.

    Police later found a custom bench that Manzanares designed to
    facilitate sex acts with the dog inside a mobile home near the
    couple’s home, according to the man’s arrest affidavit.
    Manzanares filmed the sex acts with the dog and used a hormone
    spray to excite the animal, the affidavit states. Police found
    photos and videos showing Solano having sex with the dog while
    Manzanares was nearby.

    Colorado outlawed sex with animals in 2007 as part of an update
    to animal cruelty laws. Bestiality was previously legal in the
