Steve Croley was charged under Ohio's law with 4 misdemeanors. He was sentenced to four months in jail and ordered to pay 1,796 in restitution and a 1,000 dollar fine. He is on probation for only 3 years.
Ask yourself "is that really the right penalty"?
He intentionally starved these dogs to death. He wasn't caring for any of the dogs he had been paid to take care of. He allowed them to suffer for weeks and left them locked in kennels to lie in their own feces. What did he do with the money he was paid to care for the dogs?
Ask yourself "what can I do to stop this type of cruelty"?
Please support Nitro's Law. Nitro's Law will change Ohio Revised Code Sections 959.131 and 959.99 to allow prosecutors the discretion to charge animal abusers with a 5th degree felony instead of misdemeanor charges if they fail to provide basic care. Write to your State Representative and ask that they support Nitro's Law.
