TUCSON - The DPS officer who left his police dog in a hot patrol car will face an animal neglect charge in Tucson.
City Attorney Mike Rankin tells News 4 Tucson Officer Kory Lankow will face the misdemeanor charge, but it has not yet been filed.
Pima County chose not to pursue charges against Lankow for leaving his dog, Jeg, in the hot car for more than an hour.
Jeg later had to be euthanized.
A class one misdemeanor can carry a fine of up to $2,500 and up to 180 days in jail.
