Man to Wear Pup Costume for Shooting Dog

A man who shot his Great Dane in the head is allowed to reduce his sentence by dressing up as a dog. Municipal Judge Michael Cicconetti, known for his creative sentences for low-level crimes, offered to cut Robert M. Clark's sentence Thursday to 10 days in jail. Clark, 38, who lives outside the city, pleaded no contest to an animal cruelty charge and was sentenced to 180 days in jail for shooting his dog Bill. I think the judge should of only reduced it by 90 days instead of just 10 days. Hopefully this will be embarrassing enough to prevent him and others from doing this in the future.
