Michael Sianez - Former Cop - Faces A 63-Count Criminal Complaint After Attempting To Lure Women Into Bestiality Acts With His Dog

Orange County, California (The Weekly Vice) - Michael Sianez, a 53-year-old former police officer, faces a 63-count criminal complaint for numerous alleged crimes, one of which involves posting ads on Craigslist seeking women who would be willing to have sex with his dog.

According to police, Sianez worked for the Santa Ana and Stanton Police Departments from 1979 to 1986. He was convicted of stalking in 1998 which made him a felon.

Authorities allege that Sianez began a few private investigation firms without a license in November 2005 until June 2010, under the names KMS Investigations, Fore-Front Investigations, and 4Front Investigations.

It is alleged that Sianez would receive money from potential clients and then, either do little or no work, or subcontract the work to other firms but never pay them.

When another private investigator posted comments on the internet in an attempt to alert people to Sianez's fraudulent activities, Sianez allegedly threatened to burn down her house. He has also been accused of threatening to use his contacts in the police force to file false reports about others that have tried to report his activities.

Investigators say that while looking into Sianez's allegations of fraud, grand theft, et cetera, they uncovered a Craigslist posting in which he was allegedly attempting to set up meetings with women who were interested in having sex with his Labrador Retriever.

Sianez turned himself in to authorities after a warrant was issued for his arrest. He faces 63 counts total; felony charges: 20 counts of grand theft by false pretense, 12 counts of fraudulently using an access card, 2 counts of 2nd degree commercial burglary, 5 counts of possession of a firearm by a felon, 4 counts of theft, 4 counts of obtaining electricity services through false representation, identity theft, perjury by declaration, computer access and fraud, and possession of ammunition by a prohibited person.

The misdemeanor charges include 3 counts of conspiracy to commit sexual assault upon an animal, 2 counts of dissuading a witness from reporting a crime, 3 counts of obtaining electricity services through false representation, criminal threats, unlawful representation as a private investigator, engaging in the business of private investigation, and doing business without a valid license.

He faces sentencing enhancements for aggravated white collar crime over $100,000 and property damage over $65,000. If convicted of all counts, he faces a maximum of 38 years in jail. His bail is set at $180,000.
