Animal Care Services said that on May 11, Johnson allegedly squeezed a “child’s pet to death during a domestic violence disturbance.”

Roberto Ramirez confirmed that he represents Johnson but declined to comment further on the case. 

Due to the felony animal cruelty count and other charges for gun and drug possession, Johnson is facing up to 25 years in prison if convicted, according to the Animal Care Society. 

The San Antonio Police Department’s North Patrol Property Crimes Unit assisted the Animal Care Society in the investigation.
