Grimes’ trial set for Dec. 12-14

doogiedown5.jpgOn Monday, Nov. 19, a jury was selected in the case of Tammy Grimes of Dogs Deserve Better. The trial has been set for Dec. 12 to 14.

The judge issued a gag order on Grimes and everyone involved in the case. It is unlikely that Grimes’ evidence — including a video of the dog’s suffering and the veterinarian’s report — will be deemed admissible.

Grimes was arrested for theft when she rescued a dying dog Sept. 11, 2006.

Dogs Deserve Better has signed a private criminal complaint against the Arnolds.

These dog owners allegedly left their dog, Jake, (renamed Doogie) lying on the ground, without being able to stand, for days before Grimes stepped in on September 11, 2006, and took Doogie to the vet and refused to return him. Grimes was subsequently arrested for theft of the dog from the Arnolds’ property.

    Once again our justice system is missing the point and the mark on which side should be charged. Why are we not charging the owners for neglect. Clearly if she has video of the dog being neglected and has a Veterinarian statement to attest to this that should be admitted as evidence and we should be charging the owners not the rescuer.
