Mustafa is scheduled to be sentenced next week. He plead guilty on January 9, 2020 in Ingham County Circuit Court before Judge James Jamo.
"He had confessed that he had picked the dog up and then slammed it on the ground multiple times which then caused several compound fractures to the right-rear femur of the dog," Kyle Hanney, Lead Animal Control Officer said. [...]
Animal control investigators got involved when Mustafa's girlfriend brought the dog to the humane society in October.
"He was actually brought in by a family member at the time and additionally we were told that a few weeks prior he had also been beaten unconscious," Willson said.
His girlfriend told investigators Mustafa routinely beat Champ.
Here's the hideous response by the authorities:
He was charged with domestic violence shortly after the dog was taken to the humane society, but the Ingham County prosecutor's office dropped those charges. We're working to find out why.
Officers say the deal he cut with prosecutors calls for no jail time if he stays out of trouble.
