Twain Harte Man Charged With Animal Cruelty On The Run

Sponsored by:

Sonora, CA — Tuolumne County Law Enforcement is on the lookout for a Twain Harte man who skipped his sentencing hearing for starving his two dogs to death.

A warrant was issued for 29 year old Everett DeLeon´s arrest after he missed his court appearance Monday.

DeLeon was scheduled to serve a year in the county jail after pleading guilty to felony animal cruelty.

The charges come from the discovery of the rotting remains of his two dogs in January.

Reports indicate the animals were chained behind his home, deprived of food, and rain was the only water available to them.
