FLUSHING TOWNSHIP, Michigan: Kenneth Edward Plouffe has accepted his charges of animal cruelty and pleaded guilty on April 24, 2012. During the month of December of 2011, he was detained on allegations of beating his dog after he noticed that the dog had relieved himself inside the home while he was out drinking. He was charged with killing and torturing a 10 lb female Pomeranian to death. Plouffe first confessed his crime to a friend of his and his friend then proceeded to alert the authorities. He was detained and after the necropsy was performed on the dog, a warrant was issued on January 23, 2012. Plouffe is at the Genesee County Jail.
If found guilty: Max Penalties for Kenneth Plouffe for killing 10lb dog
We, the undersigned, respectfully ask the Honorable Judge Fullerton, that Kenneth Edward Plouffe receives the maximum sentence for the crime that he has confessed to have done. Due to his alcohol intoxication he harmed a sentient defenseless living creature. His sobriety might have led him to do the honorable act of confessing to his crime...but people that have alcohol dependence have a difficult time recovering from their addiction. Therefore we ask for him to serve his sentence and be provided with rehabilitation for his dependency so he cannot hurt another living creature ever again.
