Lancaster County Pit Bull Owner Gets Probation

Posted on: July 11th, 2011       Attorney Thomas Newell

On July 5, 2011, a Lancaster County PA pit bull owner plead guilty to 3 violations of the PA Dog Law and was sentenced to 6 months on probation. The defendant’s pit bull attacked a 5 year old boy at a community park in Quarryville PA. The Lancaster County pit bull attack victim sustained multiple lacerations to his face and head.

The pit bull had attacked another person several months earlier and its owner had been found guilty of harboring a dangerous dog. Despite this conviction, the owner did not have the required $50,000.00 liability policy. The dog was not on a leash nor muzzled at the time of the PA dog attack – both violations of the PA Dog Law.
