Debra Olney and husband Daniel Ridge were charged with owning a dangerous animal that caused serious injury.
The appeals court says prosecutors failed to show that Roscoe had previously attacked a person, a key point necessary to send the owners to trial. The court says Roscoe’s past aggression against a fence and lawn mower tires doesn’t count.
The dog was described as a pit bull and Shar-Pei mix. The 3-0 decision was dated Tuesday and released today.
