Animal abuse

Dog torturer/killer sentenced to year in jail.

Observers say the conviction will change how animal-abuse crimes are dealt with in Ontario, sending more offenders to jail for longer sentences and potentially barring them from being near animals for greater periods of time.

Justice Fergus O’Donnell’s decision on April 15 will help guide the outcome of other cases, says Connie Mallory, acting chief inspector for the OSPCA.

“Judges will certainly reflect on that sentence and my hope is they will hand down similar sentences based on the crime that has happened,” she said.
