Dogs truly are man’s best friend: just ask Benjamin and Hope Jordan. The couple’s dog, Killian, was largely responsible for the arrest of their babysitter, Alexis Khan, who was taking care of their seven-month-old son, Finn, when they weren’t home.
Khan was abusive to Finn while caring for him when the couple wasn’t around, but the dog’s aggressive behavior towards her led to the couple filming the babysitter and discovering the cruel treatment. Khan pled guilty yesterday to assault and battery and was sentenced to one to three years in prison, in addition to being placed on a child abuse registry so that she can never work with children again.
“About five months into her being our babysitter, we started to notice that our dog was very protective of our son when she would come in the door,” said Benjamin to WCSC. “He was very aggressive towards her and a few times we actually had to physically restrain our dog from going towards her.”
