Adrienne Martin: Lawyer Says Accused Dog Killer Is Innocent, Argues Brownie Was Violent
Dennis says he is in the early stages of considering requesting a change in venue, because he is concerned Martin will not get a fair trial due to the intense outcry.
"Given the way the public has taken the ball and run with this, there's sort of a big question as to whether she can actually receive fair treatment here," he says. "I hope the justice system will do as it has done in my experience and will be fair and equitable."
He also argues that her $50,000 bond is unjustly higher than some suspects behind bars for violent crimes against humans.
"Harming people seems to be less severe...than harming an animal," he says.
Randy Grim, founder of Stray Rescue, argues that Dennis has already lied in front of a judge.

"He said that people from Stray Rescue have been calling his office and no one has ever even heard of him until that moment in court," Grim tells Daily RFT. "He brazenly lied to the court. Knowing that I saw him lie, I don't believe anything he has to say."
"The evidence is just overwhelming," Grim adds of the case against Martin, noting that police directly say she confessed.
Of the family's actions, he says, "The harassment is all documented."
"He's doing whatever he can for his defendant. That's what he's supposed to do," Grim says.
Responding to the argument that Brownie was violent, Grim says, "It's vigilante justice and after the fact, going and purposefully killing him in such an inhumane way. It was their dog, and it was their responsibility to take care of their dog."
He says that he does not know if any of the family's accusations are even true, adding, "All of that to me was a moot point. It doesn't justify breaking the law. It doesn't justify doing something so horrific."
