Jefferson man to spend 4 months in jail for shooting dog with BBs
JEFFERSON (WGME) -- A Jefferson man, who admitted to shooting a dog with more than a hundred BB's, will spend another four months in jail.
Aaron Armstrong pleaded guilty to shooting a black lab named Lady, leaving BB's all over her body, even in her face and head.
Some of those pellets will be in her body the rest of her life.
Armstrong pleaded guilty to a charge of cruelty to animals, but a judge threw out a plea deal that would have limited his sentence to time served, about four months.
That sentence is scheduled to begin in a couple weeks.
