The owner of Falco K9, Tyler Falconer, appeared before Judge Michael Bolden in South Boston District Court on Wednesday and was officially charged with animal cruelty. Falconer pleaded not guilty and was ordered released on personal recognizance. He is scheduled to return to court on July 18th.
According to prosecutors, three dogs boarded with Falco were harmed while in his care.
