Prison sen­tence for house-sit­ter

Los Angeles Times - - National Briefing - ALASKA

A 19-year-old Alaska man has been sen­tenced to six months in prison for be­ing the house-sit­ter from hell.

The Fair­banks Daily News-Miner re­ported that Blair Fredrick Law­less pleaded guilty to first-de­gree ve­hi­cle theft and an­i­mal cru­elty. Po­lice said Law­less was re­spon­si­ble for let­ting a sled dog and two chick­ens die of thirst in May.

Ac­cord­ing to court records, 12 other sled dogs and five other chick­ens had been with­out wa­ter for sev­eral days. Tem­per­a­tures were in the 70s.

Law­less was a fam­ily friend who had been paid to care for the an­i­mals. But when the home­owner re­turned, he found his car and hand­gun had been stolen.
