Convicted Dog Killer Denied Parole

The parole board is saying “No,” to the Reno man serving time for torturing, killing and dismembering seven dogs. 32 year old Jason Brown said what he did to animals was “cruel” and “disgusting” but he says he has served his time. In 2015, a judge sentenced Brown to 28 years in prison, which would have meant he was not eligible for parole until 2025, but it was determined — under Nevada law — he was actually eligible for parole in 2019. According to the Nevada Department of Corrections, Brown’s crime was mis-classified as violent because the victims were animals, not people. They reclassified the gruesome offenses as non-violent. Brown is eligible for parole again in 2025.
