From The Journal Times.com:
"RACINE — Call it the case of the dueling documents.
what it boils down to is whether bond documents for a Racine man
released from the Racine County Jail last week reflect a $2,500 cash
bond, or $2,000.
"His defense attorney contends only $2,000 was
posted for his release, and he shouldn't have been set free because he
still owed $500. Racine County’s sheriff staunchly maintains the
document states $2,500 was the bail price, and all $2,500 was paid –
leading to Fred C. Gossett’s rightful release."
52, formerly of Park City, Illinois, near Waukegan, allegedly stomped
on the puppy in a Racine home in 2012 -- with his son -- because the
dog’s owner owed the younger Gossett $13. His defense attorney said in
court on Wednesday that he called her Monday to inform her he wrongly
had been released from jail because he still owed $500.
State Public Defender Adrienne Moore, who heads the state Public
Defender’s trial office in Racine, stated via text message on Thursday
that 'the jail made a mistake' in releasing him.
bond was changed from $2,000 (in 2013) to $2,500 (on Nov. 12) by the
(judge). While he had previously paid $2,000, he had not paid the
additional $500 to get out of jail so the jail clearly made a mistake.'
"Mistake? 'Not according to how my supervisors interpret the court documents,'
Racine County Sheriff Chris Schmaling stated in a text message Thursday.
jail supervisors book in and release 10,000 prisoners on average each
and every year. I will take their word over a defense lawyer who failed
to get the client to show up to court and has no experience doing
bookings and releases like we do in a jail setting,' Schmaling stated."

What sort pf sick, disturbed, twisted mind does these things?
Imagine, he already has a son and is teaching him violence. At what point do we interfere with another's actions?
I think he needs neutering himself and a restraining order keeping him away from animals.
