NORWICH – A man who was found guilty of starving a dog to death was brought back to court for violating his probation Friday.
The Chenango County Court was forced to issue its third arrest warrant for Douglas A. Haslett, 51,Greene, in the last year. Haslett failed to check in with probation repeatedly and then failed to show up for his court appearance. “Mr. Haslett has no car, no phone and getting a hold of him has always been a very difficult situation,” said Public Defender Alan Gordon.
Gordon explained that the missed appointments were the result of Haslett’s inability to find transportation.
