If you are one of those people who thinks the government should take care of you, you may want to think again.
Maywood mayor Ramon Medina Mojarro has been convicted of animal cruelty for failing to care for his gravely ill dog.
Mojarro has been found guilty of one count of animal cruelty and one count of failure to care for an animal.
Prosecutors successfully argued that Mojarro’s mistreatment of his pitbull mix caused the animal to suffer from chronic illness. The dog had not been taken to a veterinarian for treatment.
The dog was emaciated, had severe muscle wasting, couldn’t walk or eat and had to be euthanized.
Mayor Mojarro is looking at up to one year in jail.
