The man accused of torturing a dog in Quincy may also have stolen more than $200,000 from the woman for whom he was a caretaker, prosecutors said in court Thursday.
Radoslaw Czerkawski, a 32-year-old Polish immigrant, was arraigned in Norfolk Superior Court in Dedham on 12 counts of animal cruelty and one charge of misleading a police investigation. During Thursday’s session, Assistant District Attorney Tracey Cusick also disclosed the theft allegations.
“As a result of this investigation as to what happened with this dog, there is a separate investigation as to the defendant’s involvement of the financial affairs of the [95-year-old] woman he was caring for,” Cusick told the court. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
