Request that Dominique Dillard serve her sentence for starving Schmiegel OR go to JAIL

Back in May 2011, Schmiegel was found by Camden Animal Control, starved and unable to move and was surrounded by feces. He had been neglected and starved for an alleged 3 week period by owner Dominique Dillard.

Schmiegel was not expected to survive due to the advanced stage of malnutrition and neglect. Thankfully, he survived and was cared for by New Jersey Aid for Animals.

Dominique Dillard was sentenced to a mere 15 days of community service, fine and a ban from owning pets or having any contact with any. This sentence was so light because of a plea deal by  the prosecutor.

Quote from article: Judge Trabosh said, "You just have excuse after excuse for this, and you haven't even tried to say you're sorry or appear contrite. I wouldn't let a rat live in the conditions you allowed this dog to live in." After stating Dillard's community service, he added, "If you don't show up, you'll be going to real live jail."

Please sign this petition and request for Judge Nicholas Trabosh to abide by his word and send her to jail if she continues to not comply with the sentencing.

      UPDATE ON CONVICTED ANIMAL ABUSER DOMINIQUE DILLARD

      On June 14, Kathy McGuire, President of NJAFA attended the third CEP Adult Probation Hearing for Dominque Dillard convicted animal abuser.

      Last month, Ms. Dillard did not bother to show up, however the CEP Hearing Officer, Lisa A. Lynch, Attorney in Trenton appointed by the Camden Probation Department, decided to give Ms. Dillard yet "another opportunity to finish her community service."

      Ms. Dillard was given NINETY HOURS IN MAY 2011 and has still FIFTY SIX HOURS yet to serve. She told Ms. Lynch at her April hearing that "this community service is just so inconvenient."

      Ms. Dillard did show up for the June 14 hearing and was told she has until August 14 to finish her 56 hours. If she does not finish, the case will be remanded back to Prosecutor Howard Long and Judge Travosh in Lindenwold Municipal Court who will be ready to hear this case again.

    3. Court Date Scheduled

      Another Lyndsey Lohan in the flesh and blood. She does not deserve a second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth, nineth, tenth or more chances for what she did. Schmiegel did not have a say in what happened to him, and he endured his "hell" for weeks. It is time Dominique faces her own "hell." She was warned about the consequencs, if she did not show up for her "punishment." It is time for actions to speak louder than words. JAIL, HER!! PLEASE!!
