Ex-US fire official gets jail for puppy beating

Ex-US fire official gets jail for puppy beating

A retired Los Angeles County assistant fire chief was sentenced Friday to 90 days in jail for using a rock to beat a puppy so severely it was euthanized.
Glynn Johnson apologized to the dog's owners, who urged the judge to give him the maximum sentence of more than four years in prison.
Besides jail time, Johnson must perform 400 hours of community service working with dogs and repay the owners' vet bills.
The 55-year-old Hillcrest man was convicted in January of animal cruelty using a deadly weapon for the 2008 attack in which he repeatedly bashed a 6-month-old German-shepherd mix in the head.
Johnson claimed he was freeing himself after the neighbor's dog, Karley, clamped its mouth on his hand and nearly severed his thumb tip as he walked her home.
