Dog Dealer Expected In Court Next Month

The court case involving a well-known puppy broker is expected to resume next month. Gail Benoit was not in Bridgewater Court earlier this week. Her lawyer, Cathy Benton, told court her client was under the weather and was not able to appear. The Crown is looking to beef up her release conditions. However, she must be present in order to modify her release conditions. Currently, Benoit is not able to sell dogs while her fraud case is before the court. In March, Benoit was charged with theft, fraud and identity fraud after she allegedly sold two boxer dogs that didn't belong to her. The case resumes July 9th.
