The Humane Society of the United States praises the Alabama Board of Pardons and Parole for denying parole to Juan Daniels, who was the first person convicted of felony animal cruelty charges under the Pet Protection Act. Daniels pled guilty in 2009 to beating his mother’s dog and setting him on fire.
“The Humane Society of the United States is pleased to see that justice is being served in this case, and that the Alabama Board of Pardons and Parole is wisely keeping convicted animal torturer Juan Daniels off the streets,” said Mindy Gilbert, Alabama state director for The HSUS.
More than 60 supporters of the dog now known as Louis Vuitton came to the hearing to oppose Daniels’ parole. Daniels was sentenced in 2009 to 9.5 years in prison, which is a record sentence for animal cruelty in Alabama. The extreme nature of his crime and his subsequent poor prison record contributed to the board’s decision to deny Daniels’ parole.
