UPDATE ON ANDREW DELGADO.. Camarillo man pleads no contest to torching family dog. An 18-year-old Camarillo man has pleaded no contest to setting his family's basset hound on fire in a high-profile criminal case that drew national attention. Andrew Delgado on Friday pleaded no contest to one count of animal cruelty and one count of arson on a property. He will be sentenced Feb. 13. Ventura County Superior Court Judge Kevin McGee told Delgado that he could be sentenced to as many as three years behind bars. However, McGee said that Judge Bruce Young, who will issue the sentence, has indicated he will sentence Delgado to no more than 16 months in jail. He could also consider probation with a sentence of up to a year in jail.

    1. his face is now known.and what will be will be.. Hopefully as part of his punishment he will be educated in things. Also I hope that he is medically examined as he is clearly not of sound mind....KARMA.....

    2. so once again a judge will slap the criminal crazies hand and say don't do this again. when is the law going to make the consequences to criminal action stiffer and teach a lesson to these idiots. who will be hurt by DELGADO next?

    3. Ok, first of all the maximum jail time needs to happen. When a human being torches their dog I personally think it should be considered a felony. Once they get away with that their next step is burning, stabbing, shooting another person. Let him out early so this would be possible is irresponsible of the legal system. Give him MINIMUM 4yrs to sit in jail to think about what he has done. And hopefully another inmate will kick his damn ass. I hope that justice is served.

    4. Okay, first of all. He should get maximum penalty. If he doesn't this will b what will happen. When a human being abuses a animal it usually leads to burning, stabbing or shooting of a person (s). They are psychopaths. If he gets a mimimum sentence then he will b fre e to do these things anywhere he wants. The Judge should give him the 4yrs which is absolutely ridiculous it should be at least 10-15 yrs. Anyway, give him the 4yrs so he can sit in jail and think about what he did. And hopefully another inmate will kick his ass to the ground for what he did.

    6. Hey Cathie Hall,
      My traditional Indian brothers and sisters and I are savages. Torturing animals was brought here by the white man. Savage means simply, "not civilized."

    8. Gee, and aren't all the news media crying about why no one caught that lunatic before he murdered his mother and all those children in Sandy Hook? Here's a clear case of a dangerous loony, who will surely go on to torturing and killing children if he isn't locked away, and the judge is considering letting him go with probation?! What kind of sense does that make?

    10. Hey Kurt Kaltreider,
      You have a talent for removing context from a statement and focusing on a word. "Savage" has many meanings not just your "simply" defined version. And since we are off topic; which "white man" brought animal abuse here? I personally would like to know which one to blame. --Perhaps you meant white MEN, or the white PEOPLE. "the white man" simply means one (1) Caucasian male. --See what I did there?

    11. Well how about that Judge,
      Is he out of his mind??? Abuse is Abuse, period!! A slap on the wrist, is just not enough to deter others from doing the same or worse.

    14. Are you kidding. That judge needs to be sentenced if he isn't going to sentence this man. Even the three years isn't long enough. He should be sentenced to life, he took a life he does not deserve one. Besides it is already known that these people turn into serial killers. Maybe the Judge will be his first victim.

    15. This isn't easy to admit but I once did a year in county jail for driving w/o a license. County jail is MUCH harder time than state prison. Little known fact. The most a judge can sentence a person is a year in jail. County jail allows much fewer privileges and harsher conditions than prison. Any more than a year and the sentence must be served in state prison. I vote he gets the year in jail and then the probation which he will probably violate and then be returned to jail for another year. This would be the harshest of the three options.

    16. Oh, and stop trashing the judges involved for "weakling and spineless" sentences. What you really need to complain about is the sentencing guidelines for animal cruelty. The maximum sentences in the entire US are far too lenient and these judges can't unilaterally ignore them. Send a letter to your Congressman or Senator to demand the penalties be raised.

    17. I agree. The laws need to change in order for authorities to be able to sentence these dangerous people accordingly. We are Animal Control Officers in Ky. It's like our hands are tied and it's pitiful. Send letters, emails and phone calls!

    23. I think we should set up a cause to get Judge Bruce Young disbarred.!~!~! He should not be allowed to sit on a court bench.!~!~! Six months for burning that poor dog.!~!~! Since Judge Bruce Young feels that 6 months is long enough we should take the judge out & set him on fire so he can see how it feels.!~!~! If the judges would start giving stiffer sentences then maybe, just maybe it would sink in & these idiots would stop doing the horrible things that have happening to all of the innocent animals.!~!~! The same for the people who think they have a right to go out & steal & murder people.!~!~! These judges need to open their eyes & see what is happening to the animals & people.!~!~! Lets get Judge Bruce Young off the bench.!~!~!~!~!

    24. What needs to be investigated is the menal health of this person. To set an innocent and defenseless animal on fire takes a warped mind. But mental health is not something the "system" seems to care much about either!

  2. I am disgusted at this weakling judge who has already committed to a low sentence. Too many judges today are afraid to give a tough sentence and send the right message...unless politics are involved and then watch them suddenly grow a spine.

    No matter what this judge gives this bastard, he will have to answer to a higher authority for his sin .

  11. Maybe someone in prison can light this piece of garbage on fire. I'm not a huge proponent of violence, but that kind of behavior is a clear display of having absolutely no regard for life, no empathy... seems like the kind of person who could kill anyone/anything and not care for a second.

  12. He should be set on fire. Don't even waste a jail cell on this douche bag. Just light him on fire and end it.

  13. I agree that 14 months is far too light. People like this often go on to worse things but don't your judges have sentencing guidelines which tell them the maximum they can give for certain crimes? If so, maybe the three years would have been best with a good psychiatric valuation while inside with maybe a probationary period on release where he has to report to someone weekly for a long time.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Judge Young, before you give a slap on the wrist to Mr. Delgado, please consider whether you wish to be responsible for another Ted Bundy, who, like many other serial killers began his "career" by torturing and killing animals. This is a heinous act on it's face, but it is indicative of more such horrors to come; this young man has an obvious predeliction for causing suffering. Don't just turn him loose upon the innocent people who are sure to follow his mayhem. We have just seen little children slaughtered by a disturbed young person. Please, take into consideration that you have a responsibility for his future acts.

  15. What kind of Judge could do something so horrible. Unless he has something against animals himself. This guy deserves the max. for putting a dog on fire. Both the judge and this guy need to get their acts together, and help the situation not harm it by giving him a lighter sentence. They are both wrong in what they have done and what they will do.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Obviously, Mr. Delgado has serious psychological problems. His sentence should be serious therapy; but psychiatric disorders are left untreated in favor of retribution. No amount of retribution will help the poor dog, but psychiatric treatment might help Mr. Delgado become a responsible citizen.

    1. Hi Cameron....I like your reasoning, but if he does get referred into the criminal justice system, there is the possibility that this guy is anti-social or psycho-path and they have no idea on how to treat this relentless condition so they may give him a short probation. He is only 18 years old and with those behaviors running around on our streets, he seriously qualifies for a 12 year sentence. I saw a page on facebook which was saving the names and punishments for cruelty to helpless animals. Sounds like a good idea.

This may be the next serial killer, or the next shooter of innocent children in a school situation. Shame, shame on Judge Bruce Young. Why don't these judges have any balls to give maximum sentences to these sick individuals. If the dog had happened to be the judge's dog or his child's dog, you can be sure he would be up in arms then. Take this potential killer off the streets before he causes further heartache~~not only with animals but with humans, too.

Maybe if his loving innocent family dog was ruthlessly torched alive he would grow the balls to give this oxygen thief what he deserves-I doubt it though as we routinley see child molesters, elder abusers & animal cruelty people get slapped on the wrist while our prisons are overcrowded with mostly harmless drug abusers & such just to pretend thier fighting this joke they call a war on drugs...just let me and my animal loving friends desl with this sac of sh#" & if he lives thru it I promise he will never hurt another innocent creature!!!

  21. Doesn't Judge Young know that animal abusers often become human abusers. Delgado should be given the maximum sentence, mandatory psychiatric treatment, never be allowed to own an animal again and at least a year on probation upon his release from prison. I'm sick and tired of these wing nuts getting no more than a slap on the wrist. If more aggressive steps were taken to deal with animal abusers, far fewer innocent animals (and later people) would suffer. Wake up Judge Young and do the right thing!

    ReplyDelete
  22. 16 months! Give me a break Judge. You know for a fact that people who abuse animals normally turn into child or spouse abusers! 5 years and 5000 community hours would still not be enough.But JUDGE, when he is in your court again for killing or abusing his spouse, girlfriend or child, what will you do then? Give him another slap on the wrist? That blood will be on your hands and We The People will want your head on a platter right next to his!

    1. I hope he gets the max too, Mary. I try my best (especially in this area) to detach any of my reading and learning away from supporting a government writer. Yes, I know, long reach but it really isn't when you are looking at someone that has dedicated 20+ years of their life in writing on such a narrow topic and receiving grant funds for continuing a topic that has been used by the criminal justice system up and down, left and right. Please Mary, Let him (Mr Delgado) get in to the system so that he can at least get tagged. Let him get known. Sometimes when facing judges who care not for animals or humans in the community, these guys go free. They walk because the judge is probably identifying with the aggressor and getting a charge out of animal abuse. Take a look at this thread already....We know that Judge Bruce Young will not give the cruel dog killer any time in jail. Mr Delgado probably is anti-social or psychopath but aside from killing a poor helpless and defenseless dog, there are no cited records of previous diagnosis, no records of previous treatment. NUTHING !! Better get him tagged if you can because the judge is going to let him walk.

  42. When/where is the psychiatric evaluation that should determine whether Delgado is fit to be released back into society when his sentence is up, or if he needs to long-term psychiatric, institutionalized supervision? This is a very, very sick and twisted individual who is clearly empowered by inflicting unspeakable pain on Innocents. People who view crimes committed against other humans as a greater offense than those committed against animals are missing the crucial, critical connection between the two. Until we recognize that the exploitation, murder, torture, mass slaughter, and neglect of other species with which we share the earth leads to a defective sense of morality and justice, individuals like Delgado will be given the opportunity to terrorize and torture again and again.

  49. I will go along with the 18 months sentence just as long it is in a dog kennel and after he has been torched to the same extent he did to his pet dog.
    As for the judge, he is not a fit and proper person to hold such a position, how would he feel about the case if it had been his dog or pet.
    These people only make decisions on previous cases and to the legislation laid down by the ruling bodies, the governments or in the UK Lord Lords.

  50. This is why people continue to hurt, kill, and mame animals because of Judges like this not giving it the punishment it deserves.

  51. It is a proven fact that anyone who tortures and kills animals is a future killer of humans...and that's not extreme because it was later found out that Jeffrey Dahmer also abused and tortured animals...I pray to God everynight that scum like this is punished even if they aren't dealt with in the courts and I will really pray hard that Mr. Camarillo is dealt with not only in court, but when he is six feet under and meets God and answers for his sin!!!!

This deranged bastard should be burnt slowly, and feel the agony of hell, I am not a person who would normally wish harm to anyone. But this bastard, is walking away with this brutal crime, and this judge should burn with him, and rot in hell. There, are innocent people who are in jail for murder, and they have proof that they just being left there because our goverment suck's. I am so tired of seeing these poor defencless children of God's picture's and how they suffered everday, and these worthless pieces of trash walk away. It's not going to stop unless we get a miracle, but as a animal lover I will fight this cause in all way's possible. But, as a believer in my higher power he will get these two and make them suffer, and all that hurts another life.

  58. This is exactly why I left Ventura county!!!!!!!!

    I retired from Ventura county animal control and moved from that county and state all together, The judges are all ball-less, spineless wimps. My next door neighbor owned 4 pit bulls he kept chained in his back yard. One day, As my other 12 y/o neighbor was walking her little scotty dog, He decided it would be a good idea to unchain all 4 dogs and walk them without a leash on them or in his possession. The dogs attacked the little girl and her dog. Myself, My large strong male friend beat those dogs for no less than 35 minutes before I was able to pick the scotty up and take him home. The dogs were taken into the shelter and a hearing was held after many months, 2 of the dogs were stolen in the middle of the night from the shelter where I work, never to be found again. when the nusence hearing was finally held, The 2 remaining dogs were ordered put down. NO ORDER FOR THE OWNER TO NOT OWN ANY DOGS. IN FACT that bast*rd got another pitbull while waiting for the hearing and it came into my yard and attacked my little dog. Ventura county calif. is a mecca for animal abusers because the judges don't give a shit.
    Another time a neighbor kid came to my home and took my pet pigeon from his cage and poked the air hose from my bike compressor and blew the bird up of course killing him. I called the VENTURA COUNTY SHERIFF to make a report and was treated like I did something wrong. Nothing came of my report and 3 days later my son confronted his class mate for killing his pet and got in a fight, MY SON WAS ARRESTED. Do you think this has anything to do with the fact the the pigeon killer had a uncle that was a COP.

  59. Not nearly enough punishment. In my state the last person that treated a dog this cruelly was sentenced to 9 years and 6 months with no early release. He will have to serve the entire sentence.

  60. I say we all inundate Judge Kevin McGee's email & office informing him of the consequences of his ruling. Not to metion the outrage the public at large views these crimes & the justice systems inability to properly handle pathetic CRIMINALS such as the individual in his court room. If the criminals & abusers are not punished they learn there are no consequences for their actions & future crimes become more heinous & in humane. If an individual can dole out such severe behavior on an innocent animal, a beloved family pet, what other actions can this deranged individual do to other innocents?!?

  61. There is no part of me that will ever understand how anyone could set an animal on fire, or abuse it in anyway. It takes a
    a real psycho to do such a thing. People like this are seriously flawed. They have no empathy for another living being.
    Unfortunately the court system has not caught up with the wishes
    of the people. They still think that an animal is "just an
    animal". They don't understand that an animal has feelings just like a person. The difference is an animal can't take care of
    itself. It depends on you and I to feed it and take care
    of it. An animal loves and tries it's best to show that love,
    sometimes even to the person who is abusing it.
    I thought this would lead to as petition that would be sent to
    the presiding judge who will hand down a sentence. Someone
    suggests emailing Judge McGee, but doesn't provide an email
    address. If someone has it, that would be a possibility, not
    that it would guarantee he would read the emails.
    This person deserves more than a slap on the wrist. He deserves
    some serious jailtime and when finished some real serious
    therapy with a shrink, before he tries his psychotic behavior
    on another animal or maybe a human being next. A sane person
    doesn't do these things.

  62. 18-mos.... or even 3 years for setting a dog on fire? They call that a sentence? People get that for smoking a joint. That's *almost* as criminal as animal cruelty. When will animal cruelty be taken as seriously as it merits?

  63. He'll be out in a year and will gradually progress to humans. A tougher sentence is needed and then mandatory and permanent label as an animal abuser, similar to sex offenders being labelled. Perhaps then when he does go out on a rampage, his name will pop up quickly in the system.
