This coming from Soares. I guess he proved his commitment to animal abuse when he allowed only 6 months which amounts to 4 months with good time in jail for the jerk that left the three puppies at the railroad tracks to die. First reported that the puppies were nailed to the railroad ties, Somehow that changed to something else. The same jerk left a number of dogs in a trailer in sub-zero tempertures with no heat, food and water to die in Colonie.

Outcome, one of the three puppies on the railroad tracks died and one lost a foot. The Colonie dogs were found before they died.

Someting is wrong with this whole story. Says one thing and does another.

seems a bit excessive. I think a $50 fine would be more in order. I don't see the upside to putting people in prison for behavior that does not have a detrimental effect on society.

Yes, as can be predicted, you are vile and intolerant of any opinions that don't align with your own narrow-minded, emotional drivel.

I am the owner of the home who's tenants dog was abused by James Lee Lyons a sexual predator. Anyone who abuses an animal should have the same penalty as it were a child! I have created a facebook page "Together Against Predators" Please like, follow and share my page. I am going to do everything I can to make tougher laws! To prevent SICKO'S from abusing poor defenseless animal in anyway! I have contacted the Senator, House of Representatives, Nan Rich ect... Not only do I want to make the laws tougher, I believe there should be a law that a sexual predator would be required to disclose that he/she is a sexual predator when purchasing property. I know the man that sold Mr. Lyons this property and he would never have sold it to him and his co-owner. Lyons will be arraigned on Tuesday Aug. 13, 2013 and it is my understanding he is pleading not guilty (even after confessing). Our Laws need to be changed and we the people are the only ones that can do that! Please help me fight so other animals, children and families don't have to go through this.
