A California appeals court has overturned the conviction of Alex Castro for brutally beating his ex-girlfriend’s cocker spaniel, Copper, to death with a hammer in July 2007. According to news sources, the court ruled that the trial was tainted because Castro’s lawyer did not hire an expert to evaluate whether or not Castro wrote an intimidating letter to a witness.
Please urge California Attorney General Kamala Harris to petition the California Supreme Court or the 6th District Court of Appeal to review this decision so that Copper gets the justice he deserves and to ensure that such an egregious act of violence does not go unpunished! The attorney general must make her decision quickly, so please act now!
