Defendants In Animal Cruelty Case
Fail To Show Up In Court

Arrest warrants were issued Friday for a couple who failed to show up Friday for a scheduled Greene County General Sessions Court appearance on animal cruelty charges.

The cases of Roger L. Miscovitch and Susan R. Miscovitch had been continued several times since they were initially charged with the offense last year.

The Cocke County couple was charged with misdemeanor counts of animal cruelty on Aug. 29, 2013, after allegedly leaving two dogs in a parked car in a Greeneville Medical Group parking lot near Takoma Regional Hospital.

Temperatures outside were in the 90s when police arrived and freed the animals from the locked car.

The dogs "had been shut in a car for around two hours," a Greeneville police report said.

A female Shar-Pei mix dog in the car "could not stand and appeared to be having a seizure," a report said. The animal had to be euthanized the next day.

The other dog eventually recovered and remains at the Greene County Humane Society Animal Shelter.

The case has been continued several times. During an October appearance, Susan Miscovitch, 55, was removed from General Sessions Court and charged with public intoxication.

She later forfeited bond on the charge.

The proceeding was continued to a December date, but the couple's lawyer was unable to be in court. Judge Kenneth Bailey Jr. continued the case to Friday.

The Miscovitches seek the return of the surviving dog.

"Those defendants did not show up so we issued failure-to-appear (warrants) for their arrest," sheriff's Deputy Gene Norton said.

Susan Miscovitch and Roger Miscovitch, 71, live on Good Hope Road, in Parrottsville.
