A black police officer accused of starving his police dog to death will serve one year of probation under a plea deal

Rondal Brown, 51, also agreed to give up his law enforcement certification, meaning he can’t be a cop in Florida anymore. Brown pleaded no contest, and Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Darrin Gayles found him guilty of a reduced charge: one count of misdemeanor animal cruelty. As part of the deal, Brown must pay $500 to the Jimmy Ryce Foundation to replace Dynasty, plus $1,000 to Miami-Dade’s Animal Services trust fund.
