The case for a Greater Victoria woman who left her dog in a hot car has been adjourned until April 25 at 9 a.m. at Western Communities Provincial Court.
On July 23, 2018, Stephanie Skinner allegedly left her Boston terrier in her car for seven hours during daytime with the windows up in Langford. She is charged with one count of causing an animal to continue to be in distress. The dog, Ava, succumbed in the 30 C weather.
Skinner faces up to two years in prison, a ban on pet ownership and a $75,000 fine.
