Two other people at the home, Brittany Record and Jackie Luttrell, were also arrested and charged with hindering prosecution or apprehension.
Pope was arrested in late July after police say some of his dogs viciously attacked a Lincoln Co. woman, almost tearing off her arm. He was accused of harboring a vicious animal, and cruelty to animals. At the time, police say they found 12 dogs at Pope’s home, ranging from puppies to adults.
The dogs were taken to Danville-Boyle Co. Humane Society.
