A MAN who was sentenced for being the owner in charge of a dog that was dangerously out of control has had his community order revoked and has been re-sentenced. 

Guy Raymond Edwins, aged 63, of Glasney Road in Falmouth appeared in front of magistrates on Tuesday, October 24, after it was determined that a community order made by magistrates on May 26, 2022, was unworkable.

An application was made to revoke the community order and re-sentence on the grounds that Edwins was not physically able to complete his unpaid work hours. 

The original offence took place on September 3, 2021 in Falmouth where Edwins was the owner of a dog, namely a four-year-old American Bulldog named Johnson, which was dangerously out of control in Glasney Road, Falmouth and whilst so out of control injured a woman. 

Edwins was made the subject of a community order when he was originally sentenced, however, during the re-sentencing, the community order was revoked and he was fined £200. 

According to the sentencing council, the maximum penalty for being the owner of a dog that is dangerously out of control in cases involving injuries to persons is five year's custody, with a range between a conditional discharge and four year's custody.
