Quincy: Man in ‘Puppy Doe’ case could face deportation

(AP) – The man charged with torturing and beating a dog in Quincy could face deportation to his native Poland.

The Boston Herald reports that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement issued a detainer on 32-year-old Radoslaw Czerkawski. A spokesman for ICE said in a statement that Czerkawski will be turned over to federal officials for removal proceedings after the criminal case against him is wrapped up in Massachusetts.

Czerkaswski has pleaded not guilty to 11 charges of animal cruelty and a charge of misleading police stemming from the alleged abuse of “Puppy Doe,” the pit bull who was euthanized after being found barely alive in August.

New Bedford police are also considering filing charges against Czerkawski for the alleged theft of checks from a Roman Catholic church.
