Wilana Frazier/Dexter Kitten Case: The Course of Justice Moves Slowly

Yesterday’s pretrial hearing in Wilana Frazier’s animal cruelty case in Hernando County FL has come and gone with seemingly little progress and yet another pretrial hearing set for October 28.

Court documents merely note a status check and  another waiving of the right to a speedy trial from yesterdays hearing, along with the setting of October 28 for the next step in the process to getting to trial.

A concerned Florida resident and supporter of the quest for justice for Dexter kitten and the second kitten, now called Drake, who was beaten along with Dexter on June 10 of this year in a public park in broad daylight, allegedly by Wilana Frazier and her two young boys, was in court and has shared her observations of what went on.

Felicia Poquette observed the hearing and took away an impression that the Prosecutor may not be standing as firm as hoped, and may be considering non-state jail time for Frazier, if she is convicted or pleads guilty. There is still no public  indication that the woman may decide to plead out the case.

A few observers have noted that the defense attorney does not seem to be well received by the judge, but even if so, that may not reflect upon the case or its outcome.

We are told that the court has accepted reports and  is considering information that we have not been able to verify as fact; for example the online forum comment by a supposed neighbor that the kittens were hers and were taken and beaten in retaliation for her children taking back a bike stolen from them by the Frazier boys. We have only reported the existence of this comment and have no way of knowing whether it is factual or not. Another widely circulated piece of information that we cannot verify is that Frazier at one point put a photo of a kitten on her Nuce Boo Facebook profile with the banner No Regrets. While the court has received reports on these two pieces of information, we have no knowledge of whether they have been taken seriously and investigated or not. We hope they have at least been investigated.

For now, we wait. We will continue to follow this case all the way through to its conclusion.

Action News 10 was at the courthouse but, to paraphrase Ms. Poquette, they’re unlikely to run footage of six minutes of trying to set the next court date.

_____

The creator of the Care2 petition asking for rigorous prosecution and maximum penalty, should there be a conviction or plea, tells us that the petition will remain open for the duration of this case, up to sentencing. The petition has been presented to the court, and updates are presented at the appropriate times.

Our story Justice for Dexter Kitten: Care2 Petition Asks Maximum Prosecution For Attacker includes a link to the petition.

    Is this bitch in jail while awaiting trial or is she free to perform acts of cruelty on other defenseless creatures? And, where are her monster children, does she still have custody?

      I was wondering the same thing myself…..she should not be allowed to be out in public to do as she pleases!!! Her kids are going to be ruined for life because of this. It is really sad.

    Wishing this woman harm accomplishes nothing, save to vent our own anger and frustration at the situation. What is done is done. She needs help, and I would also question her ability to care for her children. Anyone who would beat an animal will beat a child- no question.

    I hope she gets the maximum. I can’t believe how long this is taking. I hope the judge does not go soft on her. I really don’t know what the hold up is. She did it and she was proud of it. She posted a picture of one of the little dead kittens and put “no regrets” under it on her website. Her own lawyer said that those actions did not bode well for her. Please keep us posted as to what happens here. I will keep my fingers crossed that she gets a stiff penalty.

    A high level of interest in this case must be maintained. Poor little Dexter and his brother must be remembered. I believe the defense attorney is trying to delay things hoping public interest will fade.

    This woman is the SCUM of the earth, she needs to go to jail and lets throw away the key.She is PATHETIC!!! a sorry excuse of a human i personally would love to spend ten minutes in a locked room with her !!! I hope the court gets to see the phots of gorgeous Dexter and his brother and to give her the maximum penalty,although in my heart she will never receive the true punishment she deserves.

      It was yet another court appearance where they had her show up, did a status check, waived speedy trial (again), and set the next pretrial date for 11/22.
      If I hear anything newsworthy that went on I will definitely post on it.

        Thank you very much just called ..S.A. office… No plea was offered to the Monster Mom! Public pretender (er defender) begging for more time.. This is good news case will most definitively be scheduled for trial next time if past precedents are any indicator. My wife worked at the state’s attorney office in South Florida long ago and 3 continuances is limit of most Judge’s patience! Please keep distributing and upping the unprecedented support that poor dead Dexter and his brother Drake have garnished. Let not their untimely passing be in vain but forge the sword of revenge against animal abusers all over the world! The wicked shall be punished here and in the next world where they will burn!

    They are trying to delay the case again and again until people have forgotten (they hope) and that way she gets a lighter sentance or she gets off completely. We have to keep this HOT HOT HOT !!!

    This is not a human being, this is a monster. Anyone that can deliberately brutalize defenseless companion animals (or any animals for that matter) should not be allowed to prey on whomever she comes in contact with. This includes her children. They are going to require years of intervention after having willingly participated in this horror. Any court or legislator who does not slam this scumbag should be investigated. This is not just two expendable superfluous kittens, this is HUMANITY on trial here.

      The pretrial hearing was postponed to December 19th. On Saturday, December 17th there will be a memorial event for Dexter in Brooksville at Van Horn Park at Noon. People who are working against animal abuse and want to see Wilana Frazier get a just sentence for the abuse and death for Dexter and Drake are asked to attend and support Dexter.

    If this lady is willing to harm an innocent animal, who knows what she could do to her children. If she is willing to teach her children to do this as a behavior, then who knows what how they live. I’d like to say something about her being publicly beaten with a baseball bat, maybe encourage her children to join and help–after all it seemed alright in her world view to do it to another being, but that would not get justice for the kittens. What would really help is if the laws were changed ans this action looked at as training for future serial killings and brutality on humans. If the lawmakers took this action for what it symbolizes (the brutal death of innocence, and a disregard of life in general) not just “damaging someone’s property” it might stop for ever. Questionable morals, lead to violent actions.

      Hi Candy,
      From what I understand, there was another hearing on June 7 and the jury trial was supposed to be held on June 11 but it has been rescheduled. I’ll check the case file and get the date.

      The case file still lists the jury trial for today but I believe i heard elsewhere that they rescheduled. I’ll let you know if I get to the bottom of it.

    I hope that she rots in Hell. She is evil and people like her are not “rehabilitated”. Poor Dexter never knew what happened to him all he knew was that he was in pain. I hope that this pathetic excuse of a human is punished to maxium. Why can’t they just get on with it? What a horrible mess. Poor little Dexter. That sentence better be a strong one.

    So, are they hoping that we will forget about this case? Running the clock down? She needs to GO DOWN NOW! Get the kids psychological help. They will need all the compassion and love “mother” (what a joke) did not give them. I would enjoy seeing her in a jail cell with Casey Anthony. Another POS!!!
