Region 8 Man Facing Trial on Animal Cruelty, Illegal Dog Fighting Charges

SEPTEMBER 11, 2006 - Posted at 6:07 a.m. CDT

 

SEARCY, AR - An animal cruelty trial is to begin this week in White County Circuit Court.  Donald "Jerome" Jolly faces numerous counts of animal cruelty and unlawful dog fighting.  In July, the Sheriff's office and humane society volunteers found almost two dozen dogs neglected and found a fighting ring on Jolly's property.  The dogs had no water and one dog was dead.  The trial is to begin tomorrow morning.

Animal cruelty is punishable by up to a year in jail and a maximum $1,000 fine.  Unlawful dog fighting carries a penalty of up to six years in prison.

If convicted, Jolly also would be responsible for humane society expenses for boarding and caring for the animals, estimated so far at nearly $16,000.
