Defendant/Suspect: Daniel Joseph
A New Orleans man pleaded guilty on Tuesday to two counts of animal cruelty and was sentenced to three days in jail.
Daniel Joseph appeared in court on charges stemming from the death of two dogs, which were found tethered in the summer heat outside his home.
Judge Desiree Charbonnet sentenced Joesph to the jail term and imposed a $500 fine. An additional 160 day sentence was suspended, and Charbonnet barred Joseph from having a pet while he lived in Orleans Parish.
The Louisiana Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals lauded the sentence as a statement against animal cruelty.
