Teen Guilty Of Fatally Shooting Police Dog

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A South Florida teen has been convicted of fatally shooting a police dog during a burglary.

A Palm Beach County jury found 17-year-old Ivins Rosier, who was tried as an adult, guilty Thursday of animal cruelty, armed burglary and shooting into an occupied building. He previously declined a plea deal that would have sent him to prison for 20 years.

Authorities say Rosier was one of three teens who broke into the home of Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Robert Boody in November 2012. During the break-in, a 5-year-old German Shepherd who lived at the home was shot several times. The retired K-9 had to be euthanized five days later.

One of Rosier’s co-defendants is still awaiting trial.
