The attorney for a Henrietta woman charged in the death of her two dogs says she was a responsible pet-owner.
Jocelyn Evans was charged with failure to provide proper sustenance and adequate shelter after her two dogs died from heat stroke after being left outside.
Evans’ lawyer John Parrinello adamantly defended his client outside of court Tuesday night.
Parinello says a necropsy on the two dogs did not definitively show what caused their deaths.
There will be pre-trial arguments on October 31st.
If found guilty, Evans faces up to a $1,000, and one year in jail.
