Josh Henney, 19, sentenced to six month for kicking and killing dog
19-year-old Josh Henney, who kicked and killed a dog has been sentenced to six months in prison.
Officials say Henney kicked the dog twice in the stomach while his owner was talking to his mother.
The Dublin Circuit Criminal Court found that the dog, which was a cross between a Jack Russell Terrier and a Yorkshire Terrier, was named Sam and was about 10 months old at the time.
Henney, from North William Street, Dublin city center, pleaded guilty to killing a protected animal at his home on 23 March 2020.
He has 36 previous sentences and is currently serving a two-year sentence with the last six months suspended by a crime of violent disorder.
Court documents shows the suspect was not remorseful.
On Tuesday, Judge Melanie Greally, Judge Greally imposed a one-year prison sentence with the final six months suspended under strict conditions, including Henney committing to Probation for 12 months after his release from prison.
This sentence will be consecutive to the sentence he is currently serving for violent disorder.
She said anger and aggression were carried out against the dog, when the dog owner was the “subject of his anger”.
He acknowledged that the report prepared by the Parole Service concluded that Henney was a vulnerable young man who would benefit from probation supervision on his release from prison.
