Get the charges against William Kinne dropped
Willam E Kinne is being accused of “breaking into” the jefferson county animal control building and “stealing” his own service animal back. Not only was door completely unlocked but he even left a note with his name and phone number for contact explaining the whole situation. William had resuced his dog Rainy from an abuse situation and had her 5 years prior to this situation. Then had her until her passing last year due to cancer. Three years had gone by after the incident with no contact from the pound, so he turned himself into the police. The shelter has stated they no longer wish to press any charges yet the local news still insist on printing false information on his situation.
William is being charged with third degree burglary and fifth degree criminal possession of stolen property. All for simply walking into an unlocked building and retrieving his service animal and best friend. Rainy had gotten lose from while he was out grabbing groceries. He wasnt even gone a full hour before he got home and realized she was missing. When he was told by a neighbor that dog control had came and taken her, (despite her collar & tags) he called the Jefferson County Dog Control but no one answered so he went to the pound himself.
