WHITEHALL TOWNSHIP PA - A GREAT DANE ATTACKED A BOY VISITING IN A HOME BITING HIS HEAD AND NECK - OWNER IS SENTENCED TO PAY MEDICAL BILLS AND COURT COSTS

Saturday - June 30, 2012 -  Rebecca Frey,  whose  GREAT DANE  mauled a 5-year-old boy,  pleaded guilty Friday to one of two charges stemming from the attack. She was sentenced to pay the boy's medical bills- $790,  fines - $100, and court fees and costs.

She had been charged with:

* SUMMARY COUNTS OF INFLICTING SEVERE HARM TO A HUMAN BEING WITHOUT PROVOCATION ON PUBLIC OR PRIVATE PROPERTY

* UNLAWFUL CONFINEMENT AND CONTROL

The second charge was withdrawn after Frey, who did not have an attorney, pleaded guilty. Frey approached the mother holding her son at the hearing and apologized for what happened.

The boy was visiting Frey's house on May 20 when the male Great Dane attacked and bit the boy's head and neck.  The child was taken to Lehigh Valley Hospital in Salisbury Township, where he received stitches and other treatment for his injuries.
