A Virginia man, found with a dead dog in the trunk of his car, has been found guilty of animal cruelty. Tanner Odden was arrested in November 2019 after being pulled over by the New Kent County Sheriff’s Office for drunk driving. During the stop, Odden admitted that he had a dead dog in the trunk of his vehicle.

As reported by WAVY News, the dog, a Yorkshire terrier mix, belonged to a woman who had notified the authorities that Odden had thrown the dog onto the couch while he was drunk.

On Thursday, Odden submitted an Alford plea, which is technically a guilty plea, but the defendant maintains his innocence (read more about this type of plea here).

Odden will be sentenced in early January.
