Youngstown, Ohio resident Paul Richardson Sr. was
arraigned in Municipal Court on May 28 on two counts each of failure to carry
insurance for two pit bulls and failure to register vicious dogs after his
six-year-old son was attacked by one of the dogs on May 25. He is to return to
court on July 17 for a pre-trial hearing.
After the being attacked by the pit bull, Richardson’s son, Paul Jr., required
hospitalization for the injuries he sustained to his face, head, and upper
arms. The second dog remained in the house during the attack.
