Man shoots dog and wants charges dismissed

I was emailed about this story and after some investigative work (and help from Laura!), found the court case.  

Harold Lee Quaintance, who operates an organic farm in Edgerton, Kansas, born 6/22/63 has charges brought against him for one count of animal cruelty. I called the court house and talked with a woman who said that he is charged with shooting one dog, which is a felony.  She said that the dog could have been injured, maimed or killed and that it did not say what happened in this particular case. 

On March 18, 2008, the case was filed in the Johnson County Court.  

On July 10, 2008, a memo was filed for a diversion in this case but it says nothing else about that in the records.

Today, December 2, 2008, a motion to dismiss or reduce the charge and/or penalty has been filed.  Also, his court case record shows that a memorandum in support of the motion to dismiss and a motion to continue hearing on defedant's motion to dismiss has been filed.  I don't know much about the law, but it sounds like everyone is in agreement to dismiss this case.  

December 4, 2008 is his next date in court.

Here is a link to his court records.
Map and directions to court house.
His next court date is Thursday, December 4 at 10:15 am.  

If you go to this hearing, please email me at  I will not be able to go and I would like to provide an update.

Thanks to Laura who emailed me about this story!
