Suspects are presumed innocent until being found guilty in a court of law.
Update 03/12/2021: Animal Victory has sent 7693 signatures and comments along with the petition to the new prosecutor on the case Attorney David Dutremble. David has told us the plan for prosecution has not changed from what we have discussed with Richard Waring the prior attorney on the case. We still do not have a court date.
Update 08/05/2020: Animal Victory talked with Richard Waring the Assistant Solicitor in Charleston. Mr. Drayton has been sentenced for multiple unrelated crimes, and he is currently in prison for those charges. If Mr. Drayton decides not to take full responsibility for the animal cruelty case and therefore wants a jury trial, this will be an uphill battle due to some evidentiary issues. We mention this fact so that everyone is aware that we could quite possibly lose this case if it goes to trial. At this time Richard Waring is willing to take the case to trial despite the difficulties involved since he agrees that this is a serious case that needs to result in Mr. Drayton receiving a prison sentence. If and when Mr. Drayton is convicted, Richard Waring will be seeking the maximum sentence, which for this charge is 5 years. It could be until next year (2021) sometime before the case goes to trial since this is a relatively new case and the court-run docketing system operates in terms of the age of a case, and there are a lot of cases much older than this one.
