Judge Cicconetti of Painesville, Ohio does things his own way. Sometimes this means that his punishments seem rather unorthodox to onlookers. Such is the case with this story.
Alyssa Morrow pleaded guilty to animal cruelty after she left her dog chained up in her dirty home for a full week. When he was found, the rescuers were horrified. The poor dog, Moose, was starving, thirsty, and his fur was falling out.
Rather than simply tossing Morrow in jail, Judge Cicconetti got creative. After speaking on behalf of the abused dog, the Judge said Morrow should get a “taste” of what that was like. He said, “Maybe you should get a little taste of that, but I’m going to let you have a choice here, and the choice is I want you to live like Moose, and in order to do that I want you to go down to the county dump, to the landfill, and I want them to find the stinkiest smelliest god-awful odor place they can find in that dump and I want you to sit there for 8 hours tomorrow, to think what you did to that dog while you smell the odor. If you puke, you puke.”
