The Elbert County woman whose pit bulls killed a woman in November is asking a judge to throw out a previous ticket she got alleging that her dog attacked a jogger.
Jacqueline McCuen's attorney says she was cited under a county
resolution which isn't legally enforceable.
McCuen is facing a misdemeanor charge of failing to control a
vicious dog after two of her pit bulls attacked Diana Nichols in
April. McCuen's attorney Michael Andre says the citation can't be
enforced. County Judge Kevin Sidel gave prosecutors a month to
reply and scheduled the hearing to resume next month.
McCuen and her husband William Gladney owned three pit bulls
that attacked and killed Jennifer Brooke on Nov. 30. Charges
haven't been filed in that case yet, but Andre says he's expecting
a felony charge of negligent homicide.
