CHICAGO — A Cook County judge on Tuesday allowed prosecutors to file new animal-cruelty charges against a dog trainer dubbed the "Dog Whisperer."
Circuit Judge Marvin Luckman had earlier dismissed charges when police failed to show up at the initial court hearing for Ami Moore, 47, of the 100 block of South Racine Avenue, who is accused of using multiple shock collars on two dogs in June 2006.
Luckman denied Assistant State's Atty. Ankur Srivastava's request to reinstate the charges. But he did allow prosecutors to file new charges once another Chicago police officer testified that he was one of the two officers who arrested Moore in July.
Moore's attorney, Edward Richman, said the new charges should not be allowed. He will be able to argue the matter at the next hearing, Dec. 14.
Under conditions of Moore's bail, she is not allowed to use more than one shock collar per dog and is not allowed to use shock collars on dogs younger than 4 months, Srivastava said.
