DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a Florida man has been sentenced to 90 days in jail after animal services officials found a dog chained to a couch in a filthy home.
A judge in Volusia County sentenced 55-year-old Todd Nordman on Thursday.
He was charged with animal cruelty and unlawful confinement. The dog was found last year when a deputy came to the home to evict Nordham.
The home's owner had died and a relative was taking over the home. The dog, named Red, was covered in sores and parasites.
The dog has been fostered and is ready for adoption.
