Thanks for the good wishes. Hubby has court date at the end of this week, but I imagine they will just reschedule a date once he pleads not guilty. Total pain since the town is about an hour away. We did find out the max fine is $300.

 Thanks! Dh made his appearance to plead not guilty. The judge hinted that if he pleaded guilty, then it would be about $150. Now, if they find him guilty they could fine him up to $500. His court appearance is a week from today. Ds has off school that day, so I think we will all go. After all, I am a witness.


Wish us luck!!

Wow!  Thank you for bringing this issue to my attention.  My dog has horrible separation anxiety when left home but does fine when kenneled in the car.  I would never leave her if the weather was warm, but I do tend to take her on all my errands and will leave her in the car while I run into the market or grab a bite to eat.  I didn't even know this was against any law.  I mean,  I assumed someone might call if I were to leave her in the car in the summer. . .but I don't see the risk in the winter (as long as it isn't too cold).  I really hope everything goes well in court.  Any way your vet could be a witness, knowing you and your family?

I'm in AZ and take my dog with me all the time! Of course, I only do it in cool weather but, I never, ever even considered it would be an issue with police! That's crazy!

I'm sorry youre dealing with this greensad.gif. Sending lots of positive thoughts for your court date.

Court date late this afternoon. Please send us good vibes. They could fine us up to $500. Ouch.

Dh met with the prosecutor. Dismissed!!

The pile of evidence dh walked in there with was rather amusing. Letter from our vet, photos documenting where we were that day, a print out of the weather for that day, etc.


Then they bonded over the photos of the Gabby Giffords memorial.

Yay! That makes me so happy! Did the prosecutor think it was silly too?
