Aventura Instagram Model Receives 4 Years Probation!
Spread the Word
Everyone knows that a dog is a man’s best friend but we guess there are just some people in this world who don’t give animals the right treatment they deserve. Keevonna Wilson is a 26-year-old Instagram model and singer who had a dog named Chastity who is Shih Tzu-Yorkie mix. Police received a surveillance video back in 2017 that showed Wilson repeatedly kicking Chastity in the elevator of the condominium in Aventura she was living in.
Simply watching the surveillance video will show you that it was really Wilson in the video. Even if she found a way to get rid of the surveillance video, the police will still be able to get to the bottom of things thanks to local data recovery experts in Aventura around the area. According to the Miami Herald, The security guards in Wilson’s condominium were the ones who decided to turn over the surveillance video to the police.
So Why Did She Do It?
When asked why she did that to her dog, Wilson said that she was mad because Chastity peed inside the elevator. Once the story was posted on the internet, it eventually went viral and made a ton of people furious.
Since Wilson is someone with thousands of followers on social media, many people instantly made sure that she was aware of how mad they are. Wilson basically received serious backlash from people around the world. Wilson faced a felony animal cruelty charge and according to her defense lawyer, Wilson never really intended to give the small dog some serious injuries.
Consequences To Her Actions
In March 2019, Wilson said yes to a plea deal wherein she will be given four years of probation. She also had to write the court a letter saying sorry for abusing her dog. On top of all of that, she was also slapped with a $600 fine.
Her payments didn’t stop there because she also had to pay around $2,700 for the police investigation and Chasity’s housing costs. The judge won’t be convicting her of any crime because of the deal she was given.
Issuing An Apology
Wilson recently issued a lengthy apology through a photo on her Instagram account. The post has nearly 4,000 comments already but sadly, most of the comments are from people who don’t want to accept her apology. In Wilson’s note, she mentioned how what she did was “despicable and downright uncalled for”.
Wilson said that after everything that has happened, she was able to take anger management classes. She also mentioned that she never really spoke about the issue back then because her case in court was still open.
Wilson says that she will now devote her time to helping animals who are facing animal cruelty. She will apparently “display her progress” as well so all we can do now is wait and see if she will stick to her words.
One thing is for sure though, Wilson won’t be having a new dog anytime soon because she is banned from having pets for the next three years.
