Justice Round-Up 9/7/09
Installment 4 of the Justice Round-Up. IN-Justice round-up as it’s starting to be referred to. And I don’t blame anyone for using that term as you can see. Here they are.
The creep who stuffed a sock in the mouth of a 12-week-old puppy, put him in a garbage bag and left him for dead. Click HERE for Deanna’s initial story.
Ham was originally charged with two counts of animal cruelty but worked out a plea deal for a lesser misdemeanor charge. Instead of a year in jail and a $1,000 fine, Ham was sentenced to 71 days, a $200 fine plus court costs, nine and a half months probation and community service.
Second time animal cruelty conviction for the “sweet old man” who drove nails through a fence in order to injure his neighbors dogs. The background is HERE.
Lench pleaded guilty to three charges of tormenting a living animal, purposely causing injury to an animal, and abusing an animal.
15 days in jail and also ordered to pay $4,000 in fines.
The year before this, he faced $1,000 in fines after he pleaded guilty to charges of animal abuse. He tried to poison his neighbor’s same three dogs with over 300 moth balls.
James and Lore Massey
The “his and her” commandants of a Concentration Camp for dogs. Initial story is HERE.
Pleaded guilty and must pay $2,651 in fines and court costs for denying food to 60 dogs and allowing 25 others to die.
Lore Massey also pleaded guilty to five dog law violations, and agreed to refrain from operating a kennel.
They must allow the state and Washington Area Humane Society to inspect their residence, unannounced, once a month for two years to make sure they are not abusing animals.

Elisao Gilbert Jimenez
Caretaker to The Pet Cemetary. Click HERE for Deanna’s story.
He pled guilty and was sentenced to five years probation, three days in jail (already served) and 1,000 hours of community service. Seven other animal cruelty counts were dismissed as part of the plea agreement.
He must also undergo mental health counseling and take prescribed medications. He will be subject to search and seizure at any time during his probationary period and cannot own any animals.
Do you all see the trend here? Absolute ridiculous sentences to some really horrible animal cruelty. And it’s only going to get worse if lawmakers don’t put heavier punishments on the books, and judges start enforcing them.
