"Grand Theft Dog" Felon Has Moved
A woman who went to jail because she said she tried to “rescue” a dog had her case moved to another jurisdiction last week.
Trina Vukov was found guilty of “grand theft dog” after she took a dog that she said was being abused, in August of 2010. After a jury trial in June 2011, a judge sentenced Vukov to 240 days' custody.
Vukov, 48, is now out of custody and will be on probation for five years.
Trina Vukov petitioned a judge in San Diego’s North County Superior Courthouse to have her case moved to Riverside County because she has since moved there. Judge Kirkman granted her request.
