    Wonder what the dog would have to say about the character witnesses for the defense, if it could talk.
    The part about the lengthy criminal record is immaterial to the issue at hand.
    For that matter, so are the preacher's and congregation's attestations, unless they were in the backyard with the dog...
    All, of course, imho...

    Animal neglect is also animal cruelty. Accident or not, it's far too hot to be irresponsible and leave a dog outside, chained up, with no fresh water.

    We rail against people who leave dogs in hot cars.... it takes much longer to ignore an animal to death in a backyard.

    At the very least, a sentence should include a restriction against Mr. Baldwin owning another animal.
