Alleged: Paul Brabson

Stawplains man is in custody after being accused in a serious case of animal abuse.

The Sevier County Sheriff's Office says 58 year old Paul Brabson is charged with Aggravated Animal Cruelty.

He was released on a two thousand dollar bond and is due in court on April 16th.

The dog, renamed Sunshine, should be up for adoption soon.
