Martin Jakubowski, 48, of Whiting, admitted Thursday to U.S. District Court Magistrate Judge John E. Martin he made the shelter available to Pedro Cuellar, an Illinois man who recently pleaded guilty to a dog fighting conspiracy charge in New Jersey.
Jakubowski was convicted and admitted that between 2011 and 2016, he housed dogs for Cuellar at the city animal shelter buildings for up to a year. That were used in dog fighting.
He gave Cuellar Sulfadimethoxine, a prescription for veterinary antibiotics the city had earlier purchased to treat two sick shelter cats.
Jakubowski also gave two pit bull-type dogs from the city’s animal shelter to Cuellar without standard adoption paperwork, knowing that Cuellar intended to transfer the dogs to other people.
This person has been only charged a misdemeanor crime and has been able to keep his job within the city of Whiting. Then mayor Joseph Stahura of Whiting is brushing this off as a "mistake" and this is not acceptable.
This man should be removed from all duties with the city of Whiting for allowing and being a part of such henious animal cruelty crimes.
Please share and sign to support the termination of employment of Martin as well as to support an investigation of the Whiting animal shelter as whole.
