Looks like the woman who tortured 2 GSDs to get revenge on her boyfriend will be getting 4-8 years. Too bad it could not be more.
New Hampshire woman who tortured dogs is sentenced - National Dogs | Examiner.com
Jamie Labbe, the 35-year-old woman who tortured two German shepherds in April, 2011, was sentenced to time in state prison by Judge Marguerite Wageling in Rockingham, N.H. Superior Court on Friday.
According to Saturday's publication of the Eagle Tribune, Judge Wageling advised that this case of animal cruelty was among the worst she had seen in her 27 years on the bench, and she voiced her concerns for the general public, stating:
“I have very strong concern for the danger she poses to others in the community,”
As a result. Labbe was sentenced to 4-8 years in prison.
Labbe tortured two German shepherds who belonged to her boyfriend, Kurt Krohn.
One of the dogs died after Labbe shoved multiple objects down her throat, including a metal clamp and a 6-inch pipe. The other dog survived after having several objects surgically removed from his throat.
Labbe's defense attorney Thomas Gleason, argued that the sentence was too long and advised that there would be an appeal, stating:
“Animal rights are important but they are not to be equated with what happens to human beings,”
“Dogs are dogs and people are people.”
The dogs were allegedly tortured because Labbe was seeking revenge on Krohn.
