Verdict: GUILTY For Saving A Life - Tammy Grimes, Dogs Deserve Better

BACKGROUND:

Tammy Grimes, founder of Dogs Deserve Better, was arrested September 11, 2006 for helping a dying chained dog named Doogie who could not stand in East Freedom, Pennsylvania.

- Press Release from Dogs Deserve Better

12/14/07: A Blair County, Pennsylvania jury has found Tammy Grimes guilty of theft and receiving stolen property. Sentencing is set for February 23, 2008.

FROM KINSHIP CIRCLE:
After speaking to Tammy today (12/15), I understand her misdemeanor “crimes” could merit 1-2 years jail time. Although, she is more apt to incur a fine and probation at her sentencing in February. During the trial, Tammy and her lawyer were NOT permitted to show video footage of Doogie (called “Jake” by his negligent caretakers)...on the ground unable to move or stand for at least three days.

Tammy wrote:
 “When we arrived, we took photos and video of Doogie. We initially thought he was dead, as he was not moving and his back was to us. We found out the people were not home to talk to about him, so I made the decision that I would not leave him lying there on the cold wet ground for one moment longer, and I would accept all consequences of my decision.”

Subject: I Was Found Guilty
Date: 12/14/2007

Today at 5:00 p.m. EST I was convicted of theft and receiving stolen  property in a Blair County, PA courtroom... I will not stop working for chained and penned dogs. I hope supporters will stay with me... To still  believe in us and the differences we are beginning to make in the lives of chained dogs...

For you, Doogie: May you rest in peace, knowing you were loved and cared for [at the end].
