Two burned dogs

From the SAO:
On December 12, 2007 Scottie Marco Pinder, Linwood Buckson, 28, of the 2500 block of the Edgecomb Circle was convicted of animal cruelty and second-degree arson (207253015-016) and was sentenced to two years in prison by Judge Martin P. Welch.

Today, in a violation of probation hearing before Judge Welch, Pinder was found guilty of violating his probation and the court sentenced him to the balance of the two years, six month suspended sentence he received on December 12, 2007.

On August 1, 2007 at 8:45PM police responded to the 2700 block of Ulman Avenue for a report of a dog killed as a result of being set on fire. Upon arrival, police took a report from a victim who stated that her German Sheppard, Alize, was set on fire and that the victim knew the person who set Alize on fire and that he was still in the vicinity. The victim identified Pinder and police placed him under arrest.

During his violation of probation hearing today, Judge Welch found that Pinder violated the terms of his probation by a rule 10 violation, or failure to pay all fines, costs and fees as ordered by the court. Those fees totaled $1,400.

Assistant State’s Attorney Nancy Olin of the Collateral Division prosecuted this case.
Meanwhile, Phoenix, the bull terrier set on fire in the SW has died this morning of her injuries.
