SD Supreme Court Rejects Appeal In Dog Raid Case
June 16, 2010, 10:24 AM
PIERRE, SD -
The South Dakota Supreme Court has rejected an appeal from prosecutors in a dog raid case in Turner County.
Prosecutors filed the appeal in May after a judge ruled the search last September of Hurley dog breeder Dan Christensen's property and the seizure of 172 of his dogs by Second Chance Rescue Center was carried out illegally.
Because the Supreme Court rejected the appeal, prosecutors can't use any evidence collected from the raid in the prosecution of Christensen, who is charged with multiple counts of animal cruelty.
