SKAMANIA COUNTY PROSECUTOR CLARIFIES CHARGING DECISION IN EXPLOSIVES CASE


August 5, 2013—The Skamania County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office today charged Christopher Wayne Dillingham with Possession of Bomb or Explosive Device with Intent to Use for an Unlawful Purpose, a Class A felony carrying up to 20 years in prison. Dillingham was also charged with two counts of Reckless Endangerment, carrying up to 364 days in jail each. At the request of the prosecutor, bail was set at $500,000.
Mr. Dillingham was arrested by the Skamania County Sheriff early Sunday morning. It is believed that Dillingham used an explosive device to kill his dog, endangering nearby children in the process.

I agree with Joy. I would say blow him up but not enough to die. Just enough to suffer without medical treatment so he has a chance to reflect and think about what he's done. .

A man in Florida recently got 14 years in prison for beating his dog to death. If thery do this to a helpless critter, they will do it to a human. The punishment should fit the crime and they should be separated from other humans appropriately because they are not quite human - no mercy, no compassion, no right thinking.

You would think they would drug test him at arrest. This guy was obviously doped up on Meth or some crap. If not, he is a sociopath acting out first on animals and will progress. 2 years in jail will not be enough. He will come out and escalate to people!! Hello? Mr Prosecutor... do the research on heinous murderers who first horribly hurt animals. Please, Please Please, put this guy away also on Animal Cruelty and set a precedent for others that animal cruelty is not tolerated! Mark my...

Please, Please Please, put this guy away also on Animal Cruelty and set a precedent for others that animal cruelty is not tolerated! Mark my words, it is nearly always a launch pad to worse crimes against humanity when started with innocent animals.

Not to charge him with felony animal cruelty is absolutely insane! This monster is a psychopath! What is wrong with Skamania County and the sheriff?! This is animal cruelty to the fullest extent! Shame on them for not seeing this and not going after this guy for an absolutely heinous crime! He also took the life of this innocent beautiful dog- doesn't that mean something! It's just too bad that he didn't blow himself up instead- what a horrific deed and how depraved he is! I wouldn't...

I hope he follows through with the animal cruelty charges. They should be at the top of the list. Thanks, Julie Ann, for sharing the response from the DA.

2 weeks ago my beloved Black Lab had to be put to sleep, I would do anything to have her back. This scum has no respect for life, I pray he will be brought to justice. Our country needs stiffer laws for animal abuse, this man should be set as an example. If he can blow up a dog-is a child next?

A system that protects animal abusers is unconscionable, irresponsible and shows complete disregard for the lives of animals who are here because of the very system's policies in the first place. If you permit people to breed and sell animals then you must have an equal responsibility to protect these animals from humans who continue to abuse and kill them. Every case of animal abuse must be taken seriously and abusers exposed to protect animals in the future the same way you protect...

In the beginning God, gave charge for man, to care after all the beast on earth, NOT TO DESTROY THEM! It came from a higher Being to make man and woman to care for His creation, and not to abuse!
