Mineola, NY - April 25, 2015 - The Nassau County SPCA will have advocacy members attend Nassau County Criminal Court Part 98 in Mineola on Thursday, April 30th at 10 AM. Miss Harper was found in September of 2013 with her back leg and both her ears cut off. Three people were arrested and charged with animal cruelty in connection with this case. The other case follows Nicholas Patrikis who has been charged with ransacking a home and of bludgeoning Theodore, a five year old cat, to death.
Hopefully, the presence of the Nassau County SPCA Court Advocacy members will convey a strong message to the defendant, the judge and all other interested parties in the criminal justice system: this community cares about the outcome of these animal abuse cases.
