#TheList Christopher Dean Cornell, born 01/04/1989, of 278 Checkland Road, Thurmaston, Leicester LE4 8NZ – caused unnecessary suffering to a dog during a violent domestic incident
Details on this case are sketchy as the animal abuse was just one of a number of charges faced by headcase Cornell, who has a long history of convictions for violence.
The dog pictured is/was Cornell’s dog Kieser, but no information on the nature or extent of the suffering inflicted on him by his alcohol-abusing mentally deficient thug of an owner.
No mention of Cornell being banned from keeping animals either.
The original news item on the Leicester Mercury (since removed) read as follows:
Cornell pleaded guilty to damaging or destroying a door, lighting and plates, value unknown, at a house in Syston on February 29. He was given a community order including six months’ alcohol dependency treatment and rehabilitation activity requirement to attend appointments or take part in activities for up to 10 days. A restraining order was made preventing him from contacting a named person or going to a specified address. Cornell was ordered to pay £50 compensation, £80 costs and a £60 victim surcharge. The sentence also covered a charge of causing unnecessary suffering to a dog on the same date to which he also pleaded guilty.
