Nevada Dog Torturer Sentenced to 28 Years in Prison

“Those images I watched, I will never forget. The cruelty, the sadism you exhibited is simply shocking,” Judge Sattler said.

11.11.15 - Nevada Dog Torturer Sentence to 28 Years in Prison1


They say to never judge a book by its cover, but one look at Jason Brown and you know you’re staring into the eyes of a monster.   Thankfully this one will be behind bars for a very long time for his heinous crimes.

Washoe District Judge Elliott Sattler handed the 25-year-old Reno man the maximum sentence – four years on each count of torturing and dismembering seven dogs.

Brown was arrested in July 2014 after a Super 8 Motel maid found a dog’s head in the bathtub.  The room was covered in bloodstains and dog limbs.  Police arrived to find skins in the room and severed Chihuahua heads in the refrigerator.

For days before the gruesome discovery, Brown refused to allow staff in to clean the room.  He wasn’t present when the employee found the dogs’ remains, but immediately ran away when he returned and realized he’d been exposed.

Police caught up and arrested him.  He was accused of five felony counts of willful torture of an animal and one count of possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine).

Brown recorded the torture, and though he claimed to have had no recollection of the past two to three weeks, a close family friend testified that Brown said he was feeling rage, had killed a friend’s dog, and that killing dogs made him feel high.

He purchased dogs through Craigslist.  One woman who sold him a puppy was told by Brown that he wanted the dog for hunting small ducks, and that if things worked out, he’d be back for more.

Brown pleaded no contest to the final charges of seven counts of animal torture and murder, due to his inability to recall the events, as he was high on meth, heroin, and cocaine.

Neither Judge Sattler nor Washoe County District Attorney Chris Hicks showed him any leniency.

“When you get to the level of those videos that he made, he made to reveal himself. It takes it to a whole other level,” Hicks said.  “And, so, you hate to think that there’s these kinds of people in the world, but there are.”

Several of the people who had sold their dogs to Brown cried as the judge was shown videos of him torturing and skinning their dogs.  Brown refused to watch.

“I cannot explain the grief I felt for this horrible situation. I no longer had control of myself. It’s sickening to hear these things and realize it’s me.”

The former psychology major seemed like a normal, well-adjusted young man to the people selling their dogs.  But family members say his drug addictions are longstanding, and that they’ve spent over $100,000 on treatment.  One psychiatrist said his addiction is the worst he’s ever seen.

Judge Sattler did not allow the possibility of a drug blackout to let Brown off the hook.  He sentenced the man to 28 years in prison.

“Those images I watched, I will never forget.  The cruelty, the sadism you exhibited is simply shocking,” Sattler said. “The part that frightened me most about the videos is that you produced them in the first place. That tells me you wanted to go back and watch them again — a trophy, if you will, of your behavior. You watched with friends and laughed.”

He will be eligible for parole in 11 years.

      1. No need to be racist. I know of one, black man in particular, that did some pretty messed up things with dogs. Vick ring a bell?

        1. What? Your laws aren’t EVEN as strict as this yet some areas of Au. even have feral cat laws & domestic cat curfews! ?I don’t care what color their skin is, they are PURE EVIL!!!

        2. Yes, those of us who care and respect the lives of all creatures do remember Vick, the dog serial killer.
          Wayne Pacelle of The Humane Society of United States befriended him for his fame and wealth.
          Brown received 28 years, that is about four years per dog that was unable to defend and suffered distress and pain that none of us can even begin to grasp
          Jason Brown is not famous, he is just another dog serial killer who will seek parole in 11 years. Remember this in 11 years from now.
          And I do not believe none of the guest at this motel did not heard or notice that dogs were on the premises.
          Justice will prevail when the penalties for attacking defenseless animals
          are taken seriously across the country. We need all states to have these upgrade laws to protect creatures.
          “Animal cruelty reflects poverty of the soul.”

    1. Pure Evil! He should never be released even though he will be eligible for parole in 11 years. I am sure the judge saw the evil in him; now maybe the prisoners will see that and get a high with him as most prisoners love dogs and animals so to speak, and don’t like them being tortured or killed like they don’t like kids being sexually abused. This monster is no longer of use to society.

    2. He should have for ten 28 years and 1 day that way he would have had to serve all 28 years +1 day.

      1. Yup, no way will he serve all that time.
        Just shoot him and stick his head on a spike to remind other potential abusers what ll happen will to them.

    3. I want to see him burning in hell but first to be the best sex toy for the people in prison for the coming 28 years

    4. But even here thats unheard of…there ARE laws on the books but in reality no judges enforces them.
      This particular case must have pushed the judge over the top.
      But sadly, there’s no way he’ll serve all those years. Personally I’d rather see him dead instead if using up tax payers money in prison.

    5. What? Your laws aren’t EVEN as strict as this yet some areas of Au. even have feral cat laws & domestic cat curfews! ?

    1. Yes they do Mark, every serial killer started with the killing of helpless animals and this is what scares me., that when he’s let out, he’ll pick right up where he left off.. This is not “a passing phase”, 28 yrs., 128 yrs. is not going to see this. go away and everything be.”Ok” for everyone , he can’t ever be allowed to live in a free society . It would never be safe for anyone..

  1. We need to quit wasting tax payers money – anyone who abuses animals, children, the disabled, etc. just get a clean shot to the head! ? POS!

    1. Definitely agree!! We coddle prisoners these days. All Prisons should look to Joe Arpaio, warden and sheriff or Maricopa, County, Arizona and maybe people would think twice before doing some of this crap!. Right now they get 3 meals a day. Free cable tv, exercise facilites, etc. Your get my drift. Better than the homeless, disabled and a lot of our VA!!

      1. Its a blessing to see him get justices. Served on him its just to bad he. Isn’t having same treat those poor pups had done to them so he woukd feel all the pain he give them

      1. Don’t call people a fucking retard because they are extremely in rage at something so sick , now you saying that makes you look dumb not retarded , use proper English smart guy

  2. This bastard should be skinned alive… being in prison is X enough.. ot benefits him cz he is being fed wif free food n liability free,he should be tortured n beheaded…

    1. I’m sure that there are onmates whete he’s going who just love their dogs and have little to lose. He’ll get his!

    1. He deserved longer than that, people aren’t taking what the law says seriously, the law will have to make examples of there people, before changes can be made.

    2. He deserved longer than that, people aren’t taking what the law says seriously, the law will have to make examp

  3. There is little justification for killing a human. Fortunately, this slime is not human. He should be executed. He will germinate in prison, and when he is paroled, he will graduate to humans. He should not be permitted to walk among us!!!

  4. There are definitely very sick people in the world and he is one of them. How… could he have tortured these dogs and have not empathy or sadness for the pain he caused? Sick…

  5. This is beyond horrible. So glad he was found. I’m sure he would have started on humans eventually. Those poor little dogs.

  6. Horrible…this goes to show that anyone who is going to sell a dog needs to beware. He was a pyschopath willing to get “high” off this evil act. Makes my skin crawl to think of the trust that was violated by those innocent puppies. Hope he rots in hell.

  7. Whatever this @#$%&*- has done to the poor fur baby victim should be given to him also, and not just yrs in jail, or better yet hang him upside down.

  8. There u go 7 poor animals had to die because it is easy to get them …. Hope people see this special the one who sold them to him and get smart . 28 he needs to be gone forever

    1. The evil B—–d should get done the same way he tortured those poor animals. I would bet this is not the first time he has done this sort of thing. He just got caught this time. I truly hope he dies in prison because who knows what he would be capable of doing to a human? The stakes are too high to find out.
