Jail time for Matapihi dog attack owner – National – NZ Herald News

The Matapihi owner of a pitbull which police say attacked and bit his 3-year-old nephew on the face has been jail for three years one month for cannabis dealing offences.

Arron James Kohu, 41, was sentenced in Tauranga District Court today, in relation to four charges – cannabis cultivation, possession of cannabis for supply, and selling cannabis, and assaulting a police officer.

While a police officer was trying to handcuff Kohu he punched the constable in the face.

Kohu has denied a charge of being the owner of a dog which attacks a person and causes injury.

The attack is alleged to have happened at Kohu’s Waikari Rd home on March 27 while his nephew was playing near the animal which was tied up on a long chain on the back lawn.

A case review hearing in relation to the Animal Welfare charge is due to take place later today.
