Animal advocacy - every signature counts!!

Below is a letter I received in response to some petitions for animal cruelty cases. Every signature added bolsters the strength to prosecute!!

Dear Supporters,

We want to thank you for taking the time to sign our petitions. Often times we are asked if petitions work. Please read a recent email below from whom we call one of our "Star" attorneys.

From: Helffrich, Cory D. <> Sent: Thursday, July 8, 2021 10:35 AM To: Subject: RE: Petition for maximum punishment for Ra’shae Syrtaj Jermaine Johnson

Hi Ms. Babington,

I wanted to follow up with you on the Ra’Shae Johnson sentencing case. He was sentenced to 3 years in prison today for burning the puppy in a crate. In addition to the prison sentence, he was prohibited from owning or caring for a companion animal for twenty years, ordered to pay restitution, register for life as an arson offender, and ordered to pay restitution to the animal hospital who cared for the dog after her injuries.

The petition you sent to us certainly helped us achieve this sentence today, as I relied upon it during my argument. Thank you for your dedication to this case, and to animals in general.

Please let me know if there’s anything else I can ever help you with.

Thank you.
