CLEARFIELD – A Curwensville couple has been accused of making sexual videos with a dog, according to court paperwork filed with the office of Magisterial District Judge Richard Ireland.
Rachael Alexis Harris, 19, of Curwensville was charged Tuesday by state police at Clearfield with four counts of produce/present/direct obscene performance; three counts each of criminal attempt-sexual intercourse with animal and conspiracy-sexual intercourse with animal; and four counts of cruelty to animals.
Corey D. Harris, 24, also of Curwensville was charged with four counts of produce/present/direct obscene performance and three counts of conspiracy-cruelty to animals. A preliminary hearing has been scheduled in the case for 11:30 a.m. Jan. 11, 2017 during centralized court at the Clearfield County Jail.
According to the affidavits of probable cause, on Nov. 28 state police were dispatched to the Clearfield County SPCA where a woman had brought a camera containing videos of Rachael Harris allegedly performing sexual acts with a dog. The camera belonged to Rachael Harris and her husband, Corey.
At the SPCA, a trooper observed some of the sexual contents on the camera and determined a crime had been committed. The trooper stopped viewing the contents, collected the camera and logged it into evidence at the Clearfield barracks until receiving a search warrant.
On Nov. 30 the trooper obtained a search warrant through Magisterial District Judge Jerome Nevling. According to the affidavit, he downloaded four videos depicting Rachael Harris attempting to have sexual intercourse with the dog.
On Dec. 6 a relative went to the Clearfield barracks to watch the videos. She was able to identify that Corey Harris was recording the videos.
