Sir Edwin’s Shooter Is Going to Prison

Over 25,000 of you signed Lady Freethinker’s petition, and now we have an important update. Justice has been served for Sir Edwin, a 3-year-old Dalmatian slain in his own home when Joshua Marcantonio of Glen Falls, N.Y. fired a shotgun through the front door, killing the innocent dog.

This week, Judge Kelly McKeighan sentenced Marcantonio to 15 years in prison after the jury found him guilty on felony charges of attempted burglary, criminal possession of a weapon, reckless endangerment, criminal mischief, and animal cruelty. This is the maximum sentence for attempted burglary.

Thank you to everyone who signed the petition or spoke out for justice, the prosecutors, the jury, and the judge for taking a strong stand against violence against animals. While no sentence can bring Sir Edwin back to his family who loved him, the court has sent a clear message that shooting a dog will not be tolerated.
