The long-awaited trial of the man accused of torturing a young puppy now known as “Puppy Doe” will not begin on Tuesday as scheduled, after the prosecutor assigned to the case underwent emergency surgery this week in order to save her eyesight. According to the Patriot Ledger, Norfolk District Attorney Michael W. Morrissey’s office stated that jury selection in the trial of Radoslaw Artur Czerkawski, has been postponed. The case is now scheduled for August 7 for trial reassignment.

On Monday, Morrissey’s office posted a statement explaining that Assistant District Attorney Tracey Cusick’s retina had become detached as she had been experiencing “a loss of vision in one eye.” The district attorney’s office said Cusick, a prosecutor specializing in animal cruelty cases, went to the emergency room after losing her sight in one eye and underwent surgery.

Czerkawski’s trial will be held at the Norfolk County Superior Court in Dedham, with Judge Thomas Connors presiding, where the suspect faces 12 counts of animal cruelty, including the infliction of heinous injuries on the dog who was found in a Quincy park, close to where Czerkawski had been caring for an elderly woman. Prosecutors stated Czerkawski had found the dog free of charge on Craigslist and spent weeks torturing the two-year-old pooch by stabbing her in the eye, burning her, pulling her limbs from the joints and slicing her tongue in half like a serpent. The despicable treatment was described as “medieval torture.”

Czerkawski is currently in prison after he was sentenced to three to five years  for stealing $130,000 and to another three to five years for taking $4,500 from St. Lawrence Martyr Parish in New Bedford, where he had lived temporarily in 2012.

    Another sick coward monster who preys on innocent voiceless animals who can’t fight back. I only hope that this son of a bitch gets what he deserves…to rot in prison, and get tortured by his inmates until his eyeballs pop out of his head, and stab the crap out of him till his last breath. The world will be so much better if God did not allow these evil monsters to be born on this planet! It’s these kind of people that destroy and the meaning and purpose of humanity.
