Executive summary: Road-rage dog killer

Military service: US Navy

In 2001, after a minor accident at San Jose International Airport, Burnett picked up and then threw Sara McBurnett's bichon frise out of her car and into oncoming traffic. The dog was killed, and Burnett evaded arrest for quite some time. Once identified as the culprit, Burnett used as his defense the dog "bit him", but the judge did not buy that -- he was sentenced to three years jail time for his "act or omission [which] caused an animal to be cruelly killed". One factor for the tough sentence was evidence introduced that while serving in the US Navy at Puerto Rico, Burnett beat a stray dog to death in 1995. In a strange turn of events, Burnett (acting as his own attorney) later sued McBurnett for emotional damages.
