UPDATE: Juan Daniels Denied Parole

Parole was denied Tuesday morning for Juan Daniels, a Montgomery man convicted of burning and beating a dog named Louis Vuitton in a case that gained national attention.

Supporters filled the victim’s side of the hearing room, including one from Rhode Island and another from Boston.

Louis Vuitton himself showed up at the hearing as well, appearing as a “witness” against Daniels’ release.

A group of close to 30 people from Montgomery was there, most of them wearing yellow shirts and ribbons in support of the dog.

Montgomery County District Attorney Ellen Brooks said there were several reasons not to grant Daniels parole.

One was the seriousness of the crime itself, in which the dog had burns to more than 60 percent of his body and was beaten with a shovel. Brooks and others said it was the worst case of animal abuse they had ever seen.

She also cited Daniels’ criminal record. He has been in and out of criminal court since he was 12, Brooks said.

Daniels also has received nine citations in prison for bad behavior since learning the date of his parole hearing, Brooks said.
