Quebec man convicted in pit-bull mauling to be sentenced today

CANADA – A Quebec man whose pit bull-type dog mauled a young girl in 2015 will be sentenced today.

In convicting Karim Jean Gilles last month, the judge in the case suggested the sentence would be longer than the three years the Crown recommended.

Quebec court Judge Pierre Belisle found Jean Gilles guilty of criminal negligence causing bodily harm after the attack left the seven-year-old girl with severe damage to her face and cranium.

Crown attorney Claudie Gilbert said Jean Gilles should be given a three-year prison term because of the extent of the girl’s injuries, his prior criminal record and the fact he seemed to have no remorse or empathy.

Belisle said he was considering a stiffer sentence and that it might be one he described as “exemplary.”
The conviction carries a maximum 10-year prison term.
