A Long Island City man is going to jail for one year for throwing his dog out of a three-story window.

A Long Island City man is going to jail for tossing a dog out of a third-story apartment window in August 2016, Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown announced.

According to the charges, a witness was walking along 43rd Street in Long Island City when he saw something fall from the sky and land on the ground with a loud thud. Upon looking up, the witness saw Dorian Quezada, 21, walking away from an open window on the top floor of the building.

On the ground, the charges continued, the witness found an adult female mixed-breed Chihuahua barking in pain with a broken front left leg and dislocated ankle.

Quezada pleaded guilty to aggravated animal cruelty before Queens Criminal Court Judge Toni M. Cimino last month. On Wednesday, March 15, Acting Supreme Court Justice Suzanne Melendez sentenced Quezada to one year in jail, and will be banned from owning any animal for five years following his incarceration.

After his release, Quezada will be required to register with the city Department of Health as an animal abuser, meaning he is barred from adopting pets from shelters or rescue groups, and from buying animals from pet stores.

“In pleading guilty, the defendant has admitted to the horrible abuse of his dog. It is hard to imagine that someone would do something so cruel to their pet,” Brown said. “My office takes a strong stand against any and all animal cruelty and is committed to aggressively enforcing the laws that protect animals from harm. The defendant in this case will go to jail and will be barred from owning any animals for a lengthy period of time.”

The dog, however, survived her injuries and made a full recovery. She was adopted in November 2016 and is currently happy in her new home, Brown said.

Two things I really hate. Women abusers and I especially HATE people who abuse animals. This LIC douche bag ghetto hood rat, Dorian Quezada, 21, of LIC on 43rd Street threw his mixed-breed Chihuahua out of a third story window back in August of 2016. The dog luckily survived, but broke a leg and dislocated his ankle and is doing very well in his new home with people that care instead of this major douche bag punk-ass hood rat. NOW this punk, DORIAN QUEZADA, will spend a year in prison where I am sure his 21 year punk will have his anus stretched out so far, crap will just slide out of it with no problem even when he is just walking. Might want to pick up some Depends Dorian when you get out of prison. Since none of the papers posted this punk’s photo, I did some research and found his Facebook page ( photos. So now everyone can see who this major punk is. So let’s hear from your hood rat buddies or family about how you are so misunderstood, You PUTO CULO.
