We received the following email this afternoon:
We launched a criminal investigation as soon as our office became aware of the Dale Hiteman incident at Hoosier Park on 6-1-23. We filed criminal charges against Mr. Hiteman today for Cruelty to an Animal, a Class A misdemeanor. Please see attached press release.
All the best,
And here is Deputy Prosecutor Hanna’s press release:
This, folks, is truly historic. Heretofore, it has been practically impossible to bring charges against anyone working in an animal-use industry. To Prosecutor Cummings, Deputy Prosecutor Hanna, and their entire staff, a thousand thank-yous. Today, you struck a mighty blow for abused animals everywhere.
