1 Indictment Against Dog Owners Tossed by Judge
State Superior Court dismisses charge against Gary Kolb in dog seizure case.
One of two criminal charges accusing the Kolb family of violating a court order has been dismissed by a state Superior Court judge, according to a report on dailyrecord.com.
Gary and Susan Kolb, the owners of two large African Boerbel dogs, were indicted on a charge of a contempt of court order when they allegedly violated a ruling requiring them to muzzle the animals when out in public.
Judge Mary Gibbons Whipple dismissed the indictment against Gary Kolb, but kept the order against Susan Kolb, the report said. If convicted of the fourth-degree crime, Susan Kolb could face up to 18 months in prison.
One of the dogs, Jumba, died of lymphoma in a shelter in January.
Trial is scheduled to resume Thursday, Feb. 21.
