Great news: In Charleston, South Carolina, the man who committed one of the most heinous acts of animal cruelty to a puppy dubbed Caitlyn by tightly duct taping her muzzle so she couldn’t bark, eat or drink nearly two years ago, has been sentenced to prison for the next 15 years. William Leonard Dodson, 42, of Quitman Street in North Charleston was given the maximum sentence possible (5-years) for abusing Caitlyn the dog in May 2015. His sentencing for the plea took place March 24 in front of a packed courthouse. On March 23, Dodson was sentenced to 15 years on unrelated federal charges involving weapons. Both sentences will run concurrently (at the same time).
