Washington: Hearing for Deanna Wilson, who has been charged with child rape and animal cruelty, delayed

WASHINGTON -- A court hearing for a Port Angeles woman charged with child rape and animal cruelty has been delayed for the third time in five weeks because of a pending psychiatric report.

Deanna Marie Wilson’s resolve or reset hearing was rescheduled for April 7 in Clallam County Superior Court on Friday.

Port Angeles police alleged that Wilson raped a 15-year-old boy and had sexual contact with her pet dog last year and photographed the alleged crimes with her cellphone.
During a forensic examination of Wilson’s cellphone, police discovered images of a faceless female having sexual contact with a small, poodle-like dog, Officer Erik Smith wrote in a supplemental arrest report.

A distinctive mark on the female in the photographs, which were taken May 4 and Oct. 1, matched a marking on Wilson’s body, Smith said.
Deanna Wilson, 41, has pleaded not guilty to third-degree child rape, four counts of first-degree animal cruelty, possession of and dealing in depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct and furnishing liquor to minors.

She remained Saturday in the Clallam County jail on $100,000 bail.

Wilson was evaluated by a Seattle psychiatrist in early January, courts papers said.

Court hearings that were scheduled for Feb. 10, March 3 and Friday were delayed because Wilson’s attorney had not yet received the results of the psychiatric report.

Wilson signed a waiver of speedy trial Feb. 10. That waiver will expire May 31.
