Dog thrower gets 90 days, fined $500

Donald Resor Jr., 31, appeared Wednesday in Norwalk Municipal Court, where he pleaded no contest to a single count of abandoning animals, modified from an animal cruelty charge, according to court records.

Judge John Ridge found him guilty of the second-degree misdemeanor, sentencing him to the maximum 90 days in jail and fining him $500.

Resor pleaded no contest to a disorderly conduct charge for an unrelated incident March 5, which led to his arrest on the animal cruelty warrant issued in January.

On the disorderly conduct charge, Ridge sentenced Resor to 10 days in jail and placed him on probation for two years, as well as tacking on a $200 fine.

Resor must pay court costs for both cases. The judge also ordered him to participate in anger management counseling.

In late December, a hunter saw Resor push a 4-year-old pit bull out of a pickup near Ruggles Road. The hunter then called the dog warden, who found the dog the next day.

Huron County deputy dog warden Josh Jasinski found a microchip in the dog, leading him to the original owner. 

The original owner had given the animal up to the Huron County Humane Society, and Jasinski learned Resor had adopted the dog from the humane society. 

Resor dumped the dog just weeks after adopting it.

Unfortuately Nitro's Law won't change the way that cases like this are handled but if we can get it to pass it will lead to pushes for laws that will make a difference in the future.

Ithink

I place him right up there with child molesters. Hope he rots in HELL!!!

I bet he wishes he wore a different shirt to court lol.

He shouldn't be allowed to own another pet. If he'd do that to an animal, what would he do to a child? If he has any children their welfare should be investigated.

FST

I`m glad they posted this losers name and picture. Just in case we cross paths.

Donald Resor Jr., 31 will be known as Donnna Resor Jr., 31 for the next 90 days in jail....

Ithink

Donna, meet Bubba. He's your new cellmate. Oh, and he's an animal lover.

If he has any children, we and the mom are probably supporting them. And I agree-he should never be allowed to have another pet, but you know he will somehow get one again and maybe even do worse to it. 90 days in jail is not enough. Hopefully he will end up in prison and all dogs can breathe a sigh of relief.

Vote NO on Nitro's Law.... You all must be from the white trash ghetto.

If you are against Nitro's law than you are obviously you are an animal abuser and likely to suffer when the law is passed. Go away.

Now The Rest of...

The manner in which they treat pets is how they treat people, there is a direct relationship between animal abuse and domestic violence.

So is it 90 days and a $500 dollar fine or is it 100 days and a $700 dollar fine (and two years probation) with the other charge added?
