Calvin Evatt Curenton


A Laurens area man and woman are accused of willfully starving a dog that was left in their care. 58-year-old Calvin Evatt Curenton and 60-year-old Dorica Jackson Cureton of Madden Heights Circle, Laurens were both charged with Ill Treatment of Animals. Warrants citing an investigation of Animal Control Deputy Brown state they willfully starved a dog left in their care at their residence. They allegedly had food available and fed other dogs on the property but intentionally did not feed this dog. This was reportedly discovered last Friday. Mr. and Ms. Curenton remained in the Johnson Detention Center this morning, awaiting a bond hearing on the Ill Treatment charge.
