His defense lawyer decided to step down due to the extreme nature of the case, according to the District Attorneys Office.

The legal proceedings involving a Baytown individual, accused of committing disturbing acts of animal cruelty, have been put on hold. This decision came after his defense lawyer decided to step down due to the extreme nature of the case, Your Content has learned.

Justin Reilly Belton, a 44-year-old man, is facing four separate charges of cruelty to non-livestock animals, according to CrimeSpace. The charges levied against him involve accusations of purposefully severing the paws and legs of at least four puppies using a tool that hasn’t been identified.

Belton was arrested and is presently being held at the Harris County Jail. His bail is set at a hefty $48,000, indicative of the gravity of his alleged actions.

According to legal documents, the disturbing acts of animal cruelty allegedly committed by Belton took place around June 17. Belton is said to have consciously performed these horrifying acts on the defenseless puppies, according to CrimeSpace. The intense severity of these actions led Belton’s initial defense lawyer to opt out of representing him.

Following these events, Belton’s court date has been pushed back to the next Wednesday. The court is now in the process of finding a new defense attorney to represent Belton. This case underscores the extreme and horrific nature of the acts Belton is being accused of committing, CrimeSpace reported.
