PORTLAND, OR (KRON) – A 52-year-old Oregon man was sentenced to the maximum penalty allowed by law after he pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a dog that suffered such extensive internal injuries she was euthanized. Multnomah County Judge Angel Lopez sentenced Fidel Lopez to 60 days in jail.
“If it could have been more, I would have gladly given you more,” the judge said.
The dog, a Lhaso Apso mix named Estrella, was owned by a someone Lopez knew. The owner took Estrella to be checked out at DoveLewis Emergency Animal Hospital after becoming concerned she had been abused.
