Two Dozen Dogs Apparently Discovered Without Food or Water and Trained to Fight Deserve Justice

Target: Randy McGinley, Interim District Attorney for Newton County, GA

Goal: Seek full charges against man allegedly found with multiple malnourished dogs on his property.

Two dozen dogs were discovered living in reportedly deplorable conditions in Georgia. According to authorities, the dogs had little to no access to food or water. Four apparently were not even able to be rehomed because their circumstances left them too aggressive. The owner of the property, Leon Cecil Conley III, claimed he had the dogs for protection. His history seemingly indicates otherwise.

In 2006, Conley was reportedly convicted of several counts of cruelty to animals. Similar to the current case, investigators at the time reported animals who appeared severely neglected. One of the prior charges and convictions also involved dog-fighting. This time, Conley faces 16 counts of animal cruelty. He cannot be allowed to escape serious consequences once again if he is found guilty.

Sign the petition below to demand the county prosecute this alleged repeat offender to the fullest extent of the law.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. McGinley,

The legal system is supposed to get it right the first time to discourage recidivism. Why, then, is a man with apparent prior convictions for animal cruelty once again in front of the courts looking at 20-plus new charges? Leon Cecil Conley III may be a poster example of the system’s failures.

If the accusations against him are found true, over 20 dogs endured severe starvation and dehydration because of Conley. Some of these animals were reportedly so traumatized by their experiences that they cannot even be adopted. Fifteen years ago, Conley was reportedly convicted of almost the same offense, with dog-fighting charges added at that time. He should have never been allowed near another animal, and his punishment should have more adequately addressed his alleged offenses.

Please do not make the same mistake again. Pursue maximum charges against Mr. Conley and prosecute this case with vigilance.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Leon Conley needs to go to jail to serve quite a bit of time. In no way, shape, or form should he ever be allowed to own an animal of any kind.

    I hope he finally gets what he deserves!! This should have never happened to begin with. I hope those poor dogs get good homes and lots of love.

  3. Here we go again, caught once for animal abuse and does it again! When is our justice system going to take this seriously and lock up these scumbags and loose the key!?! They don’t offer anything worthwhile to our society!!! Truly they don’t deserve to live or at best, let them live out their lives like they did to these dogs, starving to death on the end of an obscenely heavy chain!

    • Right on. I’m so sick of these HEARTLESS bastards. They get away with this shit why is this allowed by so called HUMAN beings!!!!humans arent HUMAN ANYMORE!!!! SOCK IT TO THESE BASTARDS BIG TIME PRISON TIME.

      TOTALLY AGREE ANN!!!! AN EYE FOR AN EYE!!!

  4. People who abuse innocent animals, need to pay dearly!!
    Animals depend upon people to treat them with care when they chose to have them, they cannot provide for themselves! Therefore anyone who has pets and abuses them, should be charged accordingly!!!!

  5. Too soft too stupid. Like the UK useless justice. Shoot the rotten toerag.

  6. Come on judges, get it right and Punish these animal abusers.

  7. LOCK UP THIS MAN IN JAIL FOR MANY MANY YEARS. AND FORBID HIM TO HAVE ANY DOGS IN THE FUTURE. NO MERCY WITH THAT MONSTER.

  8. As usual our archaic justice system allowed that scumbag to continue abusing animals for his greedy disgusting pockets. When are these monsters like this simply executed so our planet can breathe knowing that filth won’t eat or live on tax payers money and finally removed be from earth? Why do allow those parasites to continue feeding on the system at the expense of the rest of us? So tired of the ongoing wickedness!

  9. MICHAEL BAVARO says:

    LOCK THIS SOB UP AND STARVE HIM TOM A SLOW AGONIZING DEATH.

  10. Our Bleeding heart, do nothing courts will do nothing, AGAIN. People need to stop relying on our “justice” system and start taking matters into their own hands to deal with scum such as this.

  11. This should never had happen. He needs to spend a long time in prison and he should never be able to have dogs ever again.

  12. Leon Cecil Conley III Is a useless POS with multiple animal abuse/neglect convictions. WHY DOES HE STILL HAVE DOGS?!?! DO YOUR JOB! CONVICT, GIVE MAXIMUM SENTENCING AND BAN HIM FOR LIFE FROM OWNING OR HAVING ACCESS TO ANY ANIMAL EVER AGAIN.

  13. My wish is that this pos should be used as dog bait!!!!! The justice system needs to stop ignoring animal abuse!!!

  14. It is absolutely baffling to me that when someone has a history of animal cruelty that they are still allowed to have more pets that they can torture. The system of Law does not exist. There needs to be accountability for crimes that people commit.

  15. Cheryl+Miller says:

    What a disgusting loser!!! STOP letting this jerk have animals!!! Fine him harshly, put him in jail, make him do community service of picking up trash like he is and never ever let him have animals again!!

  16. A little return the favor would stop ALL this cruelty!!!

  17. Why was Leon Conely not watched more closely. How was he able to yet again going access to so many dogs and allow them to be abused again. The fault lies with the state- where were you? How did you watch him?

    Shameful

  18. The dogs need protection from DOG ABUSER, CONLEY! I hope theJudge gets him on FELONY Animal Cruelty! He should be forever banned from animal ownership too!

  19. Margie Smith says:

    I want to know why he’s allowed to evevn has animals???? What kind of policing is not keeping up with such things…..shame on you Georgia, & I live in Georgia!!

    Randy McGinley, Interim District Attorney for Newton County, GA

    Why are you getting repeat offenders. BECAUSE THE LAW DOES GET IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME. SO HOW MANY ANIMALS HAVE TO SUFFER BECAUSE OF SOFT JUDGES THAT GIVE A TINY SLAP ON THE WRIST.

    THIS MANIAC OBVIOUSLY DID NOT LEARN ANYTHING FROM HIS PRIOR CONVICTION TO NAIL HIM THIS TIME. DO NOT LET ANOTHER ANIMAL SUFFER DAMN IT!!!.

    FOUR ANGELS COULD NOT BE RE HOMED BECAUSE OF THIS PSYCHO BASTARD!!!!!!

    IF YOU WERE PUT DOWN …GIVE THIS BASTARD HIS PUNISHMENT FROM HEAVEN ….AS YOU ARE LITTLE ANGELS……
