Articles and Information Regarding Jenkins vs. Jenkins in Frederick, Maryland


Rebekah Lusk, of Lusk Law, LLC and Cary Hansel of Hansel Law, PC represented a Frederick couple whose dog had been shot and home illegally entered, by the Frederick County Sheriff’s Department. The couple was awarded a $620,000 judgment by a Frederick County jury, for the unlawful and unconstitutional shooting of their female chocolate lab and the unlawful entry into their home. The couple’s dog, Brandi, was shot early on a Saturday morning, while on her own property, by a Frederick County Deputy. The Deputies were present on the property to serve a Writ of Body Attachment on the couple’s son. After the owners left to rush Brandi to the veterinarian for medical care, the deputies entered their house without legal authority or permission. The jury found that the couple’s common law and constitutional rights were violated and returned a judgment in their favor against both deputies.
