An Ohio man has been found guilty of beating his dog with a baseball bat, but he won’t be spending time in jail. According to WLWT News, 18-year-old Clayton Sisco was found guilty of cruelty to a companion animal, but he was given a stay for his 90 day jail sentence.

What happened?

On June 30, someone captured video showing Sisco beating a pit bull with a baseball bat. The dog, named Deuce, could be seen trying to get away from the teen with the bat. Sisco admitted that he had beaten the dog because he was “punishing” him for pooping in his cage; the dog belongs to one of Sisco’s roommates.

Fate of the beaten dog

Deuce survived – but he was bruised after being beaten with the bat. According to Journal-News, the pit bull was taken to Animal Friends Humane Society to recover. Staff at the animal shelter has noted that Deuce is a “very friendly” dog. After Sisco’s cruel incident was discovered, seven other dogs at the same residence were removed.

The court ordered Sisco to pay $700 – if he fails to do so by August, he will have to go to jail for 90 days.

    It is sentences like this with no jail time that people will continue taking the risk of animal abuse. they know they will get away with it. Punishment is not severe enough. The dog has to go through incredible suffering before these judges will give them jail time. Why?

    This 18 year old scum should be beat with a baseball bat until he is unconscious and when he comes to, do it again. THAT should be he sentence. I hope he is never allowed to be near or own another living creature, and considering this was not his dog, then he must definitely never be alone with any animal.

    Ohio has Goddard’s Law which raised animal cruelty and neglect from a misdemeanor to a felony. What the hell good is it if assholes like this judge keep letting these lowlife MF’ers off with a slap on the wrist. Totally worthless judges and P’sOS like this punk – will animal abuse ever be taken seriously?

      Totally agree. No jail time?! A felony crime! I wish the barbarian would receive the death penalty , beaten by a baseball bat. He will continue to go on with a lifetime of crime statistically. Mass shooters and serial killers often start this way !

      Ohio supposedly had enacted laws to protect animals, Goddard’s Law, “anyone in Ohio who causes knowing harm to a companion animal will receive a jail sentence of six months to a year and a fine of $2,500. have yet to see someone received such a punishment in Ohio!

    this is not ok. He has been given less than a slap on the wrist for beating a dog who had no choice but to poop in his crate coz there was nowhere else to go. The dog wouldn’t even know why he was being attacked. Why do so many idiots think dogs can understand why humans behave like savages? The dog would know it had done something that made the idiot angry but would have no clue what. Anyway – the little freak is a disaster waiting to happen. Having tasted & gotten away with this level of arbitrary violence he’s now going to look for bigger and better thrills. Congrats to the judge on having birthed another sociopath
