Man sentenced to prison in case of Texarkana puppy beating video

The 69-year-old man from Texarkana caught on a video recorded in November 2017 abusing a puppy, was sentenced to prison on Monday.  LeGus Holloway Jr., pleaded guilty to third-degree felony animal cruelty before 202nd District Judge John Tidwell.

According to the Texarkana Gazette, Holloway’s plea arrangement includes  a five-year prison term negotiated between members of the Bowie County Public Defender’s Office and the state’s representatives, First Assistant District Attorney Mike Shepherd and Assistant District Attorney Katie Carter.

The  graphic video posted on Instagram in November  created a stir among animal lovers. The viral video showed two men and a dog – the dog had been on the receiving end of a brutal beating. At one point, the dog had been whipped with a belt…moments later she was picked up by the neck and slammed to the ground. Almost instantaneously the dog screamed in pain, while one of the men laughed at her suffering; casually mentioning that her leg had been broken.

The puppy, named Lady was removed from the home and treated for a fractured femur. The dog has since made a full recovery.

Check out Lady’s video:

    More jail time for the scum who do things like this.Maybe they will see they won’t get away with a slap on the wrist and serious jail time will be waiting for them.More judges should do this.

    “LeGus?” That explains a lot. Why didn’t the prosecutors tell this clod’s defense team to go straight to hell? Don’t they care that the message they’re sending is that animal torture is no big deal? Fatso needs to serve some serious time, pay a big fine & face a lifetime ban on owning or having control/care of another animal.

    I would like to say “THANK YOU” to the responsible, humane human who posted this BARBARIC BRUTAL LOW LIFE’S behavior on social media. That is the ONLY WAY that these monsters can be caught and JUSTICE delivered! Thank you to the “Elected Prosecutor” & “Elected Judge” for delivering JUSTICE for the INHUMANE INSANE ANIMAL ABUSE to “LADY”! Enforcing the law to the maximum extent is going to send a BIG MESSAGE to ALL ANIMAL ABUSERS this is UNACCEPTABLE, & YOU WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE!!! Their needs to be MORE PROSECUTORS & MORE JUDGES that ENFORCE the LAW to the MAXIMUM EXTENT regarding ANIMAL ABUSE…

    I hope that winkled old fuck, LeGus Holloway dies in prison – and every day of the five year sentence his old ass is harassed, intimidated, abused and used – he needs to be treated as poorly as he treated Lady – and to his fellow scumsuck who thought beating her was funny, may that bastard get a fatal date with a tractor trai

    The guy laughing about her getting beat down and a broken leg, ought to have HIS LEG BROKEN and then let’s see if he laughs at that. Sick and tired of these sub-human maggots taking out their hate on innocent animals just because they’re being themselves. IF YOU CANNOT MANAGE A PET IN THE MANNER THAT’S APPROPRIATE FOR THEIR SPECIES, THEN DON’T GET ONE. PERIOD!
