A Long Island man has been sentenced to jail after throwing a Chihuahua out of a third story window in August 2016. Dorian Quezada, 21, pleaded guilty to aggravated animal cruelty in front of Queens Criminal Court Judge Toni M. Cimino last month.

On Wednesday, Acting Supreme Court Justice Suzanne Melendez sentenced Quezada to one year in jail, and subsequently banned him from owning any animal for five years following his incarceration. According to QNS, an eyewitness saw Quezada walking away from the window moments after the dog fell and landed on the ground. The shocked witness ran over to the dog who was whimpering in pain; the was bleeding from his mouth, suffered a broken leg and dislocated ankle from the fall.

“It’s hard to imagine that someone would do something so cruel to their pet,” Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said in a statement.

In a positive advancement towards the protection of animals that advocates  actively continue to demand, Quezada will be required to register with the Department of Health as a convicted animal abuser and will be barred from adopting any pets from city shelters, rescue groups or pet stores.

Since the arrest and conviction of Quezada, the Chihuahua has recovered and has been adopted by a loving family.

    Animal cruelty punishments need to be much much stronger – Dorian Quezada SHOULD be sitting in jail for at least 10 years – personally, if I had the authority this maggot would have been thrown right off the top floor of the Empire State Building.

    This is one of the better punishments I have seen handed down. This POS will at least spend some time in jail but should never be allowed to own a pet again! It’s heartening to know this POS will be “required to register with the Department of Health as a convicted animal abuser and will be barred from adopting any pets from city shelters, rescue groups or pet stores.” Finally, now lets get more of these abusers on the list!

    I am confused. One place it says he can’t own an animal for five years, and another says he can’t ever own another animal. The “never again” is the way it should be. I like that he will spend a year in jail but I wish it could be longer. Maybe the other inmates won’t care too much for a person who throws tiny dogs from third story windows. The best thing ever is the fact that he will have to register as a convicted animal abuser. It is about time. We need to have that enforced everywhere. I am glad the dog recovered.

    More judges have to start handing out jail sentences for animal abusers! This is a horrific crime and until the courts being the prosecutors and the judges start punishing these things I will continue as it has!

        It’s better than the POS judges that just hand out small fines when animals have been abused and killed.

    FINALLY!!! And they better not release him early for good behavior! I feel the jail time should be longer but at least this is better than the usual slap on the wrist(a fine and probation)!!!! Until these scum bag animal abusers start being significantly punished we will never slow this crime down!!! So happy this little fur baby is doing well and has a new home!😊
