This is the update I received from a friend of J.J.'s family::
"GUILTY!!! The man that shot J.J. was found guilty for animal cruelty. He was asked why he shot J.J. and he stated in court,"the dog didnt do anything, I just felt like I should shoot him." Pathetic. He was fined $500 and let go. We know the judge gave him the maximum fine, but because there are no laws in Arkansas the man paid the fine and went home. Sad very sad"
