Sewell Man Gets Rehab in Case That Caused K-9 Death

A southern New Jersey man has been admitted into a drug rehabilitation program instead of serving jail time for his role in the death of a police dog.

The Camden County Prosecutor says a judge admitted 22-year-old Skyler Robinson of Sewell into the program Thursday.

Robinson and another man faced charges related to a November 2010 robbery. Prosecutors say a Gloucester County police officer and his dog had cornered Robinson along a busy road, where Robinson struggled with the dog and it was thrown into traffic and killed.

Robinson was scheduled to go on trial next week but was approved for the rehab program under its newly expanded guidelines.

They include the fact the robbery didn’t involve a weapon and Robinson had no prior history of violent offenses.
