Labrador saves man from 50-year sentence
A man from Oregon has been freed from a 50-year jail term after his case unravelled following the discovery of a labrador dog he allegedly killed. Joshua Horner, 42, was convicted in 2017 for alleged child sexual abuse. The complainant in the case had said Mr Horner shot the labrador in front of her in order to deter her from reporting his crimes to the police. But the dog was discovered alive living with new owners by the Oregon Innocence Project, who were reviewing his case.
