No jail time for woman who abandoned dog

Woman who moved, leaving dog to die, won’t go to jail


Featured Product

According to Monday’s WKBN News, an Ohio woman, who moved away, leaving a dog chained to a dog house, will not go to jail. Though 25-year-old Tameka Smith moved out of her Campbell home and abandoned the dog on a chain, with no access to food or water, she only faced a misdemeanor charge of dog confinement for the cruel act.

The abandoned dog did not survive life alone on a chain…the dog, dubbed “Charlie,” was discovered frozen to death outside of the vacant home; Smith was charged in January 2015.

Animal rights activists had rallied on behalf of the deceased dog – hoping that the woman who walked away and left him to die an agonizing death would be appropriately punished. Despite the support for a strong sentence, Smith will not spend time in jail, but she will be required to complete 250 hours of community service.

    That woman’s charges should have been felonys! This must be retried and sentenced correctly! How is allowing an animal to starve and freeze to death not a felony? No jail!!! Are you serious? This judge isn’t fit to be on any bench. He’s allowed her to torture, and murder an innocent dog!!! I’m appauled! What can we do to get this back in the courts? What DA do we contact? What local news station? This is horrific!!!

      We need petition to sign for new laws. I thought there was new law animal abuse is felony but why the judge didn’t consider it. This judge is not fair for animals or he doesn’t care. I am so sad for the defenseless poor dog that lost his life for this lady. But I hope and pray she gets sick with incurable disease that make her suffer just the same way she made the dog to suffer of cold and hungry. I hope Karma gets you evil heart, mean and cruel woman.

    This Certainly Sounds Like OHIO!!! I can Just make a bet as to what Ethic Group was involved in this horrific act!!!! The Judge He/ She should be very pleased of themselves for allowing this Putrid Piece of Rattle Snake Dung go out and probably get another dog to abuse in such a Horrible Fashion!!!! That state Of OHIO is a STATE of INMORAL DIRT BAGS!!!

    if these people receive nothing mire than a slap on the wrist, there is nothing to prevent them from repeating the abuse/neglect! this type of person would neglect or abuse their own child as well since there evidently is no comoassion or caring for another living being. punish her with jail sentence, it will also serve as a warning to others of the consequences of such actions

    IF YOU LIVE IN OHIO PLEASE DO NOT RE-ELECET THE PROSECUTOR OR THE JUDGE THAT HANDLED THIS CASE… IT IS ELECTION TIME AND THEY BOTH FAILED THIS PET AND FAILED ALL FUTURE ANIMAL’S THAT WILL BE ABUSED OR KILLED IN OHIO… AND THEY FAILED ANIMAL LOVERS AS WELL!

    In my opinion the Prosecutor and the Judge are as guilty as the evil piece of shit that left this precious pet behind to die in the cold. WHAT DOES IT SAY WHEN THEY ONLY GIVE THIS EVIL IRRESPONSIBLE CRAZY LUNATIC 250 HOURS OF COMMUNITY SERVICE??? THAT TELLS ME THAT THE PROSECUTOR AND THE JUDGE IN OHIO FELT THAT THIS PETS LIFE DID NOT MATTER… JUST LIKE THE OWNER OF THE PET FELT THAT THE PETS’ LIFE DID NOT AMTTER… WHO IS WORSE HERE, THE PERSON WHO COMMITTED THE CRIME OR THE PERSON WHO DOES’NT PUNISH THE ABUSER APPROPRIATELY.
