格洛斯特郡的議員被宣告無罪,因為他涉嫌欺詐小狗。

一名正在經營非法小狗養殖場的議員因與出售一隻聾啞雜交狗有關的欺詐而被宣告無罪。

41歲的阿拉斯泰爾-錢伯斯(Alastair Chambers)被認定在將狗當作健康幼犬的過程中犯有三項欺詐罪,罪名不成立。

他將於下個月在格洛斯特刑事法庭接受判決,此前他曾承認無證繁殖和銷售狗。

地區法官Nicholas Wattam說:"沒有同謀證明該狗的廣告是不誠實的,"。

格洛斯特Quedgeley的Manor Way的錢伯斯先生在網上發布廣告出售一隻美國Bully XL小狗後,據稱以2450英鎊的價格出售了這隻動物。

買家Shrece Share後來發現這隻小狗是聾子,DNA測試顯示它實際上是75%的斯塔福郡鬥牛梗,12.5%的秋田犬和12.5%的阿拉斯加雪撬犬。

據稱,錢伯斯先生還向買家提供了一份疫苗接種證書,日期為據稱進行該程序的獸醫手術實際上已經關閉的那一天。

"瓦特姆法官補充說:"他一直否認自己是負責發布廣告、安排銷售和處理善後的人。

"我確實對事實進行了認定,更有可能是另一個人刊登了最初的廣告"。

錢伯斯先生是格洛斯特市議會和格洛斯特郡郡議會的獨立議員,之前是保守黨人。


A councillor who was running an illegal puppy farm has been acquitted of fraud relating to the sale of a deaf cross-breed dog.

Alastair Chambers, 41, was found not guilty of three charges of fraud over passing the dog off as a healthy pup.

He faces sentencing at Gloucester Crown Court next month having previously pleaded guilty to breeding and selling dogs without a licence.

"There is no complicit proof the advertisement for the dog was placed dishonestly," said District Judge Nicholas Wattam,

Mr Chambers, of Manor Way, Quedgeley, Gloucester, allegedly sold the animal for £2,450, after placing an online advert to sell an American Bully XL puppy.

The buyer, Shrece Share, later discovered the puppy was deaf and DNA tests showed it was in fact 75% Staffordshire Bull Terrier, 12.5% Akita and 12.5% Alaskan Malamute.

It was alleged that Mr Chambers also provided the buyer with a certificate of vaccination, dated on a day the veterinary surgery said to have carried out the procedure was in fact closed.

"He always denied being the person responsible for placing the advert, arranging the sale, and dealing with the aftermath," added Judge Wattam.

"I do make a finding of fact that it is more likely another person placed the original advert."

Mr Chambers sits as an independent on both Gloucester City Council and Gloucestershire County Councils, having previously been a Conservative.
