**: #justiceforhoney – Protest and Demonstration for a Chihuahua Named Honey,
Brutally Murdered by Carlos Hernandez.
** April 27, 2016, Wednesday morning, 8:30-9:30am.
** Court – 125-01 Queens Blvd, Kew Gardens, NY, Courthouse Steps.
** Kate Riviello, NoKill-NewYork.Org and Karem Belalcazar, Honey’s Guardian.
As reported widely, including the Daily News and the NY Post, Carlos Hernandez brutally murdered a little Chihuahua named Honey by fatally bashing the little tiny dog’s head to the floor.
The group, with Honey’s guardian, will protest and demonstrate on the courthouse steps that Hernandez should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law in NY state. Riviello quoted the law 353a that aggravated cruelty to animals includes that, for no justifiable purpose, he intentionally killed a companion animal and that that action was meant to cause extreme physical pain and was carried out in a depraved and sadistic manner. Riviello and Belalcazar contend that Hernandez is a danger to the public and should be prosecuted as a felon as proscribed by law, not only to serve actual jail time but to be included on the new FBI database of animal abusers.
The protesters will wear red, chant, produce a video, and carry signs that state, “Justice for Honey” for one hour before court session begins and then they will proceed into the courtroom to hear the first hearing on this matter.

What was outcome for these cases?
Thank you for asking about Honey. The abuser received several months of prison time with five years probation (which he has to pay for to the tune of at least $80 per month). The reason for this was that he was a first-time offender. We are gratified however that he now has a felony on his permanent record which will affect him for the rest of his life. He will also be added to the animal abuse registry of New York State AND the FBI registry.
