A deal has been reached involving charges against a Washington man who kept a lost dog last summer even though he was told the owner was actively looking for it.
Chandler Murano-Hunting, 22, had been charged with felony theft of a 3-year-old Yorkshire terrier, but his preliminary hearing had been delayed as attorneys worked out a plea agreement. An agreement has been reached that anticipates that he pay restitution in full and the charge will be reduced to a misdemeanor. He expects that to happen in September, according to court documents. His next court hearing is scheduled for Sept. 20.
