Multiple media outlets are reporting former Baltimore Ravens defensive tackle Terrence Cody has been indicted for animal cruelty. The charges involve a dog and the abuse, neglect and illegal possession of an alligator.

Peter Schaffer, Cody’s agent, told Fox Sports, “If this affects at all my client’s ability to get a job, I’m going to do everything in my legal power to protect his rights.”

I get it, Schaffer is defending his client. But what about the welfare of the animals in this case? If he is found guilty and his employment options are limited, it’s no one’s fault but his.
