Guilty! Woman who let her dog freeze to death guilty on all charges

A 64-year-old woman in Pennsylvania has been found guilty of all charges associated with the death of her dog, who froze to death on a bitterly cold day in January. According to ABC 6 News, Cecelia Johnson, of Norristown, is currently released on bail pending her sentencing date.

The crime

Johnson left her dog, Champ, outside in early January in sub-zero temperatures. By the time that Champ was found, he was dead…his body between a dog house and fencing. A necropsy confirmed that the dog froze to death from prolonged exposure to the bitter cold, reported CBS Philadelphia.

Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele commented on the cruel act before Johnson faced her charges i court:

“This dog Champ suffered as he froze to death just because his owner did not take him inside on one of the coldest nights of the winter. She left him outside without food, without water and without adequate shelter. Treating an animal so inhumanely is a serious crime, and we are going to seek justice for Champ’s death.”

    Throw this vile creature in a cage and leave her there to rot without food or water. She deserves to die a slow, painful death that she gave Champ. Hope in jail they give her the justice she deserves.

    So this POS has been found guilty, now lets make the sentence MEAN something! Not just a slap on the wrist for the death of her dog, she needs to pay with jail time and NEVER be able to own a pet again! It will be interesting to see how “seriously” they do take this!

    One look at that ugly maggots face tells me all I need to know. That parasitic POS is devoid of anything that can possibly be called human. It’s nothing but a soulless blob of blubber.

    i wonder would she get the message if she were to spend the rest of her days at the North Pole sans any form of insulation, shelter, food or water.
