A Sacramento animal abuser will spend the next four years and eight months in prison for abusing two Chihuahuas. On Tuesday, Lamar Robinson, 22, was sentenced to prison after having pleaded guilty to viciously beating two Chihuahuas in December 2017.
According to the Sacramento Bee, the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office, headed by Hilary Bagley-Franzoia, works with a task force investigating and prosecuting animal abuse cases. Robinson was seen by a witness “body slamming” one of the tiny dogs to the sidewalk and holding a second unconscious, small dog by its neck, at a northern Sacramento County apartment development.
Two days later, Robinson was arrested, after authorities encountered him walking two dogs with apparent injuries, which included a broken leg. After the dogs were seized, subsequent x-rays revealed the dogs had suffered multiple fractures in various stages of healing. The dogs belonged to Robinson’s girlfriend. Video from surveillance footage revealed some of the egregious beatings the two dogs endured.
Both dogs survived. Judge Lawrence Brown sentenced Robinson to prison after the defendant pleaded guilty to eight counts of felony abuse.
