DALLAS (June 28, 2013)—Edwon Julian, 36, of Dallas, man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for killing his girlfriend’s kitten “Kisses” as the couple argued.

Julian was convicted of felony animal cruelty, but jurors acquitted him of assaulting the woman during the same incident in 2012.

Prosecutors say Julian has a previous conviction from a 2004 incident in which a toddler he was caring for was scalded.

Testimony indicated Julian and Rosa Dismuke got into an argument last July at her apartment in Richardson.

Investigators say Julian grabbed the kitten, swung the animal by the tail and let go.

The cat was thrown off the second-story balcony, hit a drainpipe and landed on the pavement.

Kisses died at the scene.

Jaris Update: Man who Threw Dog From Window Gets Prison Time

Comments Off on Jaris Update: Man who Threw Dog From Window Gets Prison Time

Back in April we brought you the story of Jaris, the Belgian malinois police dog that was thrown from a second-story window by a parolee refusing to surrender. 

We are please to tell you that the man has been sentenced to three years in prison.

Police had arrived at the Fontana, California home of Brian Bills, who had violated his parole.  The woman who answered the door claimed he was not home, but police saw him trying to escape out of an upstairs window.  He refused to comply, so a K-9 was sent after him.  Jaris lunged toward the man, and using the dog’s forward momentum, Bills propelled him out the window.

“Jaris was not able to stop himself and fell to the concrete below,”police explained.

Miraculously, Jaris survived.  But after landing on his head, his nose was bleeding and he was staggering, so he was immediately rushed to an emergency veterinarian.  He has suffered some nerve damage between his brain and sinuses, but after spending enough time recuperating, Jaris returned to work.

Bills continued to resist arrest even after Jaris’ shocking plummet to the ground.  He was caught and pleaded guilty to one count each of resisting a peace officer and intentional injury to a police dog.  Today he was sentenced to three years in prison.  Yes, we know – not nearly long enough.
