Headline: Attorney appointed for dog that attacked child. Yep – you read that correctly.
A Superior Court judge has appointed an attorney for an Effingham County pit bull that attacked a 5-year-old boy.
Judge William E, Woodrum Jr. “in the interest of justice” appointed Springfield attorney Claude M. Kicklighter to represent the dog, named Kno.
For Super Troopers fans, it’s almost like the judge is just having fun meow since the attorney is doing it pro bono. Law geeks, why else wouldn’t they just mandate the dog be put down?
