Few people could forget the heinous animal cruelty case involving a dog dubbed “Puppy Doe.” The female pit bull was discovered near a playground in Quincy, Massachusetts, in late August 2013 – she had been so horribly tortured and abused that she had to be humanely euthanized.
The man accused of torturing Puppy Doe, Radoslaw Czerkawski, was sentenced to prison time this week – the sentencing is for a crime other than the animal cruelty case involving Puppy Doe. According to South Coast Today, a judge sentenced Czerkawski, a Polish national, to three-to-five years in prison for multiple larceny charges resulting from a case involving nearly $5,000 taken from the St. Lawrence Martyr Parish in New Bedford.
Czerkawski has not yet stood trial for his alleged torture of the young pit bull. On multiple occasions, he had claimed that he is innocent of the sadistic torture which left the dog so grievously injured that she could not be saved.
Prior to Tuesday’s sentencing on the larceny charges, Czerkawski was convicted for stealing $130,000 from an elderly woman that he had been caring for. Czerkawski’s most recent sentencing did not include him getting any credit for time already served behind bars.
