ABOUT THE NEW LAW

Under Lillian's Law, which was enacted this year and goes into effect today, the owner of a dangerous dog may face felony charges in one of two ways:

A dog's unprovoked attack away from its owner's property kills someone, permanently disfigures a person or destroys or impairs a body part or organ. A previous attack by the dog isn't required, but prosecutors must prove the owner was criminally negligent in failing to secure the animal not heeding a "substantial and unjustifiable risk."

The owner knows the dog has previously injured someone or been deemed dangerous by authorities, and the dog makes an unprovoked attack outside its enclosure causing death or injury requiring hospitalization.

In either situation, the offense is a third-degree felony with punishment of two to 10 years in prison. In the case of a death, the charge is a second-degree felony, punishable by two to 20 years in prison.
