TULSA—Diane Sue Whalen got a five-year suspended sentence Friday for a crime against nature, involving sex acts with dogs. District Judge William Kellough said ongoing psychological help is needed for Whalen, 55, who must register as a sex offender, have no contact with animals or her co-defendant, Donald Roy Siegfried, 55. She must pay $350 in fines and fees. She had pleaded no contest.
Siegfried waived his right to a jury trial Monday and is to make a formal plea Nov. 17. Two of Whalen’s dogs — a Lab and a Weimaraner — were ordered forfeited to the sheriff in civil court proceedings, which sent them to a rehabilitation center in Utah. Dogs are seen in videos engaging in sex acts with Whalen, according to an affidavit filed by sheriff’s investigators. Deputies reported that in executing search warrants at the Siegfried and Whalen homes, they found a sex machine along with 119 other items such as dog booties, leashes, collars and dog cologne.
