Rolo’s Owner Found Guilty, Dog May Be Destroyed
Raj Chohan, Reporter
ARVADA, Colo. (CBS4) “• A jury in Arvada convicted Laura Hagan Tuesday afternoon of having a dangerous dog. Her German shepherd, Rolo, attacked a woman and her son last August.
Rolo attacked Kathy Hardin and her 14-month-old son. Her dress was torn and she was bruised and scratched, according to court records.
After the attack, a city judge ruled Rolo should be destroyed, especially after neighbors of Hardin said Rolo was dangerous. A stay of execution was ordered, which led to the trial.
Hagan disagreed, saying “I don’t think two scratches justify death.”
Hardin said the attack left her with puncture wounds and bruises and required months of physical therapy.
A judge will now decide if Rolo will be destroyed after the guilty verdict. He has been in custody for months.
The judge said he won’t decide Rolo’s fate Tuesday.
