New York corporate lawyer disbarred for beating girlfriend’s dog to death

The New York Appellate Division for the First Judicial Department, in a unanimous decision, affirmed on Thursday the corporate lawyer who went to jail for beating his girlfriend’s little dog to death has been disbarred. Anthony Pastor, 46, was convicted of aggravated cruelty to animals, a class E felony, and overdriving, torturing and injuring animals – a class A misdemeanor. On May 31, 2017, Pastor was sentenced to two years in prison on the felony  and one year on the misdemeanor count – the sentences running concurrently. In addition he is required to register as an animal abuser and has been banned for ten years from owning or caring for any animals.

According to the New York Daily News,  Pastor was charged with killing Snoopy — Taly Russell’s four- year-old poodle. Taly stated she had been at Pastor’s apartment and when she awoke in the morning, her dog was dead.

“I looked down and there was Snoopy — stiff, not moving — her eyes were sunken into her head, and there were feces behind her. Then I went closer, and I touched her and she was cold and hard,” Russell, 45, testified during the week long trial.

Pastor’s attorney alleged the dog had been injured the evening before while the couple had sex underneath a tree and the dog had been tied to a fence 15-feet away. Taly disagreed stating she had watched the dog during the brief encounter.

A necropsy revealed the dog died from massive internal bleeding, 9 broken ribs and a “pulverized kidney.”

Assistant District Attorney Tanisha Palvia argued that Pastor flew into a rage after Snoopy had an accident on the carpet.

“This small, fluffy dog was beaten to death,” the prosecutor said. “Think about the kind of person who would cause this kind of injury to a defenseless animal.”

Justice Robert Mandelbaum said  Pastor’s repeated blows to the dog “showed almost incomprehensible violence, and malice,” that the dog was in “excruciating pain” up until she lost consciousness while Pastor “sat down at his computer in the most cold blooded manner, and went to work, knowing that the dog lay dying,…on the floor behind him.”

And all of this happened because Snoopy, the fluffy little adorable and defenseless poodle, urinated on the floor of Pastor’s apartment.

    Glad he was disbarred and can not have any animals and will also have to register as an animal abuser registry. I just wish he had to serve jail time but because he is a lawyer, probably worked out something where he doesn’t serve jail time. Judge should have incarcerated him even for 1 year so the dog loving inmates could have had their way with him. That would have been just retribution for Snoopy. RIP poor little dog. Your owner stood up for you in court and loved you.

    So where was the “girlfriend” while this POS was beating her dog to death? Didn’t she hear her dog crying? Did she witness the attack and do nothing? I’m glad this wast of humanity lost his license, and will spend time in jail, but he needs to lose more than this! He makes me sick!

    O I truly hope this hunk of maggot puke gets his just dues by every predatory inmate in jail – being a lawyer should qualify him for all the abuse he so well deserves. And unless this ‘girlfriend’ is deaf, dumb and blind she had to have heard this little dog screaming in pain – no way do I believe she ‘woke up’ and found her dog dead.
    O Pastor the Pisser – may your jail time showers make you the bitch of the cellblock.

      really, its true.
      where the hell was she. i bet he asked politely to go to the bathroom for hours. why didnt she carry folded pee pee pads in her bag,
      clearly she knew she would be having sex under a tree. little miss manners. she did not care about keeping her dog safe.
      or she wouldn’t be any where near this animal in the first place. im glad she ruined his life. im sorry she didn’t protect the dogs life by being more responsible.
