white couple charged with child pornography and bestiality

Shawn Ingram and Dana Kintz

What started as a call to police claiming domestic abuse resulted in charges  that a man and his girlfriend sexually abused a dog, court records show.

Dana Kintz, 28, called police March 12 to the couple’s home in the 4000 block  of Russell Boulevard, alleging that Shawn Ingram, 37, had punched and slapped  her. Police said they found child pornography on Ingram’s cellphone and images  of Kintz engaged in sex acts with a dog.

Both were charged with unlawful sex with an animal, a misdemeanor. Ingram  also was charged with felony possession of child pornography.

Officials said there was sufficient evidence to charge Kintz as a willing  participant, although she claimed Ingram had coerced her behavior, and made her  wear a dog collar and mask.

Ingram denied it all to police, but officials said they found he had posted  pictures of the activities to animal fetish websites.

Ingram has served time in prison previously on a child porn conviction. He is  listed on Illinoissex offender database as living out of state but not shown  on Missouri’s list.

Kintz told a reporter she believes she was charged only because she refused  to cooperate with authorities on the child porn issue; she said someone else was  responsible for the pictures on Ingram’s phone.

She also said the dog at issue has since run away.

Ingram lawyer’s Douglas Forsyth, said, “I don’t have any comment about  anything.”
