Daventry Couple Dangerous Dog Charge


Daventry Area Crime -

A man and a woman from Daventry have appeared before magistrates charged in connection with dangerous dog offences.

Joanne Brierley, aged 41, and Lee Venner, aged 39, both of The Stour, The Grange, Daventry, appeared before Northampton Magistrates’ Court on Monday, March 5. 

Brierley faced two counts of being the owner or person in charge of a dog dangerously out of control causing injury. She pleaded guilty to the offences which happened in Daventry in January 2018, when the dog, a Staffordshire Bull terrier-type, jumped on the back of a takeaway delivery driver causing injury, and in July 2018, when the dog attacked a woman causing significant injuries that required extensive medical treatment. 

She was given a 12-month community order, a 20-day rehabilitation order and was disqualified from keeping a dog for 10 years. She was also ordered to pay £275 and £500 compensation to the two people injured by the dog.

Additionally, a destruction order was placed on the dog.

Venner, who was also charged being the owner or person in charge of a dog dangerously out of control causing injury, was acquitted of this offence but pleaded guilty to two counts of possession of a class B drug, namely cannabis and amphetamine. 

He was given a 12-month community order and ordered to complete 60 hours of unpaid work.

Sgt Sam Dobbs, neighbourhood sergeant for Daventry, said: “I met one of the victims of these dog attacks and saw first-hand the mental and physical impact of serious injury as well as the disruption to the lives of the families of all those involved. This took a long time to get to court, with complications along the way. I am pleased that some justice has been achieved.”
