Despite stumbling blocks in the judicial system, former Memphis ACO Demetria Hogan has officially been indicted on multiple charges in connection with the disappearance of Kapone and the cruel killing of Max:
Former Memphis Animal Services employee, Demetria Hogan, has been indicted on four counts of official misconduct, one count of forgery, one count of theft of property and one count of cruelty to animals.
Official misconduct, forgery, and theft of property between $500.00 and $1,000.00 are all class E Felonies. Upon conviction, each count carries a sentence range from one year to six years. Cruelty to Animals is a Class A Misdemeanor, with a sentence of up to eleven months and 29 days.
I am disappointed that she is facing only a misdemeanor cruelty charge for what she did to Max. It’s not justice but hopefully if found guilty, she will receive the maximum punishments on the felony charges since she has a criminal record.
