Kisha Curtis, the woman who put an emaciated dog (now known as Patrick) in a garbage bag and threw him down the garbage chute in her apartment complex, faces a charge of 4th-degree felony animal cruelty for the torture and torment of a living creature.
New Jersey is not known for their animal cruelty laws. If found guilty of this charge, Ms. Curtis faces 18 months of jail time and a $10,000 fine. The reality is that she will likely not be sentenced to this maximum.
Thousands of people have already called and wrote to Essex County expressing their concern for Patrick and the sentencing his abuser may receive if found guilty. Send a letter to Essex County courts and the prosecutor, letting them know you want to see a strong sentence for Ms. Curtis.
