Iowa: Case against Ashley Greene owning a vicious dog has been delayed until August

IOWA -- A trial for a civil infraction related to a dog bite at a Clinton residence has been delayed until Aug. 10.

A motion for continuance was filed June 14 by Cassandra Wolfgram, who is representing the city of Clinton in the case. The motion went unresisted by the defense.

The trial originally was scheduled for April 13 but was continued due to a witness not being available.

The case centers around a civil infraction that accuses defendant Ashley Greene of possessing a dangerous animal. Greene entered a not guilty plea March 28.

The incident happened around 4:50 p.m. March 15, according to the civil citation filed by the Clinton Police Department and issued to Greene.

The civil citation is for a violation of city code 91.125 which states "it is unlawful for any person to harbor or keep a dangerous animal within the city."

According to a civil lawsuit filed by the parents of the victim, Lucas Harrison, the child was allegedly bit by a dog that recently had been adopted by Greene.

They claimed this Pit Bull mix was a 
Boxer mix in an effort to convince
someone to adopt it.
