Published: May 03, 2019 at 06:30 AM Author: Penny Eims

Charleston, South Carolina – On March 30, 21-year-old Dangelo Drayton allegedly threw a small dog into a tree because he was angry that the dog pooped inside of an apartment. Please join us in asking officials in Charleston, South Carolina, to give Drayton the maximum possible sentence for this cruel crime which claimed the dog’s life!

Dangelo Drayton is facing a charge of animal cruelty for allegedly throwing a small dog into a tree in a fit of anger because the dog had an accident inside of an apartment. Drayton was arrested and now he needs to be punished for this cruel crime! Please join us in asking officials to give Drayton the maximum punishment – a strong message that this WILL NOT be tolerated must be sent! Read more about this heinous act of cruelty at the Pet Rescue Report.

Suspects are presumed innocent until being found guilty in a court of law.

Update 6/01/2022: According to Charleston SC General Sessions clerk of court, there is no new court date as of yet. Drayton did have a new robbery charge in 2022, and that has been combined with his animal torture and drug cases. He had a bond set on 5/16/2022, and the new court date will be posted online when it becomes available.

Update 5/01/2022: The case did not make it to the April trials, and is now scheduled to take place between 05/02/2022 to 05/06/2022 or 06/09/2022 to 06/14/2022.

Update 4/13/2022: Animal Victory has the following information about this case:


Court session to be held between 04/29/2022 TO 04/29/2022, or 06/09/2022 TO 06/14/2022

This case will be scheduled with the following associated cases:

  • 2019A1010500007Animals / Ill-treatment of animals in general, torture
  • 2021A1010201803Drugs / Poss. of 28g (1 oz) or less of marijuana or 10g – 2nd or sub. Offense

Update 1/12/2022: Animal Victory has learned that Mallory V Haliena is the new prosecutor who took over the case after David Dutremble left the office, and there is no new court date as of yet. Solicitor reception did say there was nothing new on the docket.

Update 8/05/2021: Animal Victory has been informed this case is expected to be heard by September 13, 2021.

Update 03/12/2021: Animal Victory has sent 7693 signatures and comments along with the petition to the new prosecutor on the case Attorney David Dutremble. David has told us the plan for prosecution has not changed from what we have discussed with Richard Waring the prior attorney on the case. We still do not have a court date.

Update 08/05/2020: Animal Victory talked with Richard Waring the Assistant Solicitor in Charleston. Mr. Drayton has been sentenced for multiple unrelated crimes, and he is currently in prison for those charges. If Mr. Drayton decides not to take full responsibility for the animal cruelty case and therefore wants a jury trial, this will be an uphill battle due to some evidentiary issues.  We mention this fact so that everyone is aware that we could quite possibly lose this case if it goes to trial. At this time Richard Waring is willing to take the case to trial despite the difficulties involved since he agrees that this is a serious case that needs to result in Mr. Drayton receiving a prison sentence. If and when Mr. Drayton is convicted, Richard Waring will be seeking the maximum sentence, which for this charge is 5 years. It could be until next year (2021) sometime before the case goes to trial since this is a relatively new case and the court-run docketing system operates in terms of the age of a case, and there are a lot of cases much older than this one.

* Individuals are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

 PLEASE CONTINUE TO SIGN AND SHARE-We need as many signatures as possible. Thank you!

Letter to Attorney David Dutremble
