A golden retriever in a prison dog program remains under the care of a vet, after it was discovered the animal had been sexually abused. Two inmates are under investigation by the State Highway Patrol.
Ross Correctional's Circle-Tail Dog Program pairs dogs with carefully chosen inmates to be trained for people with special needs. Studies have shown that inmates who participate in this program are less likely to commit more crimes when released.
Charges have not yet been filed, pending the collection of evidence and test results.
Note: Classifications and other fields should not be used to determine what specific charges the suspect is facing or was convicted of - they are for research and statistical purposes only. The case report and subsequent updates outline the specific charges. Charges referenced in the original case report may be modified throughout the course of the investigation or trial, so case updates, when available, should always be considered the most accurate reflection of charges.
