SEWELL, N.J. — Skyler Robinson did not intentionally kill Gloucester Township's beloved police dog, and he is not a violent criminal, says his attorney, Saul Steinberg.
Legislators and local law enforcement officials see it differently. They say Robinson, 22, of Sewell, belongs in jail for robbery, assault, resisting arrest, and causing Schultz's death.
