A magistrate’s hearing was held 2/3 in the case of a Plymouth man who failed to provide veterinary care for his cat that was slowly starving to death and suffering from multiple medical issues. The case will be left open for 1 year and the man not allowed to possess any animals during that time.
The charges against David Saccone (failed to provide adequate sustenance for his Australian shepherd and failed to provide veterinary care for the resulting medical issues) were dismissed at his arraignment 2/15.
Newnam (severely beaten boxer puppy) jury trial was scheduled for 2/28, but was instead CWOF for 2 years. Ms. Newnam may not own or be around any animals during that time, and must have a mental health evaluation.
