Schuylkill County Pit Bull Owner Pleads Guilty

Posted on: January 21st, 2013       Attorney Thomas Newell

On January 18, 2013, Attorney Thomas J. Newell received a phone call from an Ashland PA police officer that a Schuylkill County pit bull owner had pled guilty to a PA Dog Law citation. The failure to confine violation was based upon an Ashland PA dog attack which took place on November 24, 2012.

AMERICAN COCKER SPANIEL PUP #2A 63 year-old woman was walking her American Cocker Spaniel on a leash on the sidewalk adjacent to 9th Street. As she was waiting to cross the road, the defendant’s 2 pit bulls jumped the fence and began to pursue her and the little dog. As the PA dog attack victim tried to flee, she fell and suffered various facial injuries, including a deviated septum.

The PA dog attack victim first conferred with a Frackville PA law firm that then referred the personal injury case to Attorney Newell. Call 800-980-4842 today to set up a free home consultation with a Pennsylvania Dog Bite Attorney who has 31 years of experience. Visit his website:
