An Ohio man has been sentenced to jail time for starving his dog to death in December 2019. As reported by WKBN News, James Antwon Jones was sentenced to 180 days in jail, and three years of probation, for starving his two-year-old pit bull mix to death. The dead dog was found chained outside to a dog house and a necropsy revealed that there were only leaves and sawdust in his stomach.
Antwon pleaded guilty to his charges in November – he was indicted on a felony charge thanks to Goddard’s Law.
