State v. Joseph Salett, a case we prosecuted for the Cleveland APL. Salett was found guilty of companion animal cruelty for failing to provide adequate food or water to two dogs, who were both Body Condition Score 2.
Salett was sentenced to 90 days in jail, which may be imposed if he fails to complete 3 years probation. During that time, Salett is prohibited from keeping, owning or possessing in his home any animals, and is subject to random inspections. He must complete a humane education course, and must pay $500 in restitution.
