UPDATE on former Faulkner County Sheriff’s Office deputy 37-year-old KEENAN WALLACE (pictured below).
On Wednesday, March 4, 2020, in Faulkner County Circuit Court, KEENAN WALLACE has pleaded no contest to an animal cruelty charge after he was accused of shooting a small dog in the head.
WALLACE was ordered to complete 80 hours of community service within 120 days in lieu of a year-long jail sentence.
If the defendant does not complete the community service hours in the allotted time frame, the one-year sentence would be imposed.
Judge Troy Braswell Jr. approved a psychiatric evaluation for WALLACE recommended by Prosecuting Attorney Jeffery Wayne Phillips.
This ridiculous and outrageous sentence is the result of an incident that happened in January 2019, when a woman called 911 reporting that she was feeling threatened by a small dog, a female Chihuahua mix named Reese’s.
WALLACE responded to the call.
He shot at the puppy while he was arguing with a resident, Mr. Doug Canady.
Mr. Canady filmed the whole incident and the graphic video went viral on social media.
Mr. Canady was then able to take the injured furbaby to a vet.
The bullet had entered one side of her neck and exited the opposite side just next to the eye.
Mr. Canady and other residents chipped in to cover the medical bills.
WALLACE was then placed on paid administrative leave and fired the following day.
In April he was charged with misdemeanor animal cruelty.
There you go, another animal cruelty case where there is no justice for the victim!
