Owner of dog which attacked jogger accepts lesser charge
A man who admitted lost control of a dog which attacked and seriously injured a jogger has avoided punishment.
Andrey Egorov, 46, of Beaconfield Road in Epping, was due to stand trial at Harlow Magistrates’ Court yesterday.
He denied allowing his English Bull Terrier to be dangerously out of control and cause injury, but the case was dismissed when the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) offered no evidence.
Mr Egorov accepted a lesser charge of not having his dog under control and agreed to muzzle it and keep it on a lead when in public.
Joel Goodman, a 28-year-old music teacher, underwent emergency surgery on his scrotum following the attack in Shaftesbury Road on March 26.
He has since made a full recovery.
