VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — A man was found guilty on two charges after a dog was dumped in a Virginia Beach ditch last month.

Corey Alexander Ridley, 37, was found guilty of animal cruelty and animal abandonment, both misdemeanors. He was fined $250 plus court costs and will not serve any jail time.

Ridley was charged after animal control officers said they found his dog left crated in a ditch on Winston Avenue suffering from a large tumor. The dog, who was named Patty, has since had the tumor removed, been spayed and has been adopted.
