Rolo is my german shepard accused and unfairly convicted by lies and false evidence of biting a woman in Arvada last August. We are protesting the severity of the sentence compared to the severity of the crime. Because animal control officers and paramedics offically discribed the bite as a scratch. The judge sentenced this first time offender to death. My dog Rolo has been incarcerated for more than 10 weeks at Table Mountain Animal Shelter in a small cage. Rolo is not allowed out of his cage ever, or to have any human contact except for when I can visit him. Rolo\'s physical and mental health is deteriorating while waiting for an appeal. The foot dragging that the city of Arvada Co. appears to be intenional. It has been suggested from other judisdictions that some judges hold these cases off as long as possible because often these type of cases \"solve themselves\" over time. In the mean time my dog Rolo is developing physical and psychological trauma and it appears that the court may be waiting for me to voluntarily euthanize my dog. Maybe this way they will avoid the public outcries for wrongly ordering the death of my dog or the other side for letting my dog come home.
