State appeals court sends case back to Lassen County

Saturday, July 25, 2015 — A Herlong man convicted by a Lassen County Superior Court jury last August on misdemeanor charges of animal cruelty and abandoning five puppies will have another day in court.
    The Third Appellate District of the Court of Appeal for the State of California transferred the case to the appellate division of the Lassen County Superior Court on June 5.
     The appeals court did not cite a reason for sending the case back to Lassen County, but it did reference Government Code Section 68915 and two court cases.
    Taylor maintains his innocence and alleges law enforcement and the courts violated his constitutional rights. He also alleges his defense counsel was insufficient. He was sentenced to two years summary probation and 30 days in jail as a condition of probation in September 2014.
