A Niagara Falls man who sicced a vicious dog on his ex-girlfriend and her brother last year pleaded guilty to two misdemeanors Thursday in Niagara County Court.
Assistant District Attorney Lisa M. Baehre told Judge Matthew J. Murphy III she had to drop felony assault charges because the victims were refusing to cooperate in the case against Teron Moore, 26, of Cleveland Avenue. He was to go to trial on the felonies July 18.
Moore still faces up to two years in the County Jail when he returns to court for sentencing Sept. 1. Murphy lowered Moore’s bail from $30,000 to $500 in the wake of the plea. He had been in jail for about five months.
Moore brought a pit bull dog to the woman’s home Oct. 9 and ordered it to attack. The woman and her brother were bitten on the arms, legs and back. However, the woman called Baehre about 10 days ago and said she didn’t want to pursue the matter.
