Upon sentencing, prosecutors are recommending that 27-year-old Haniyyah Barnes, of Newark, be sentenced to a 6 year prison term.

For such a senseless and heinous act, which was solely hurt the dog’s owner, is 6 years even enough for someone who does something like this to a defenseless animal?

While the punishment involves jail time, which is more than some other similar animal abusers have received in NJ, is it enough or do the courts still need to do more?

Take the poll below and let us know your opinion.
