A district judge on Wednesday dismissed three summary citations against a Spring Hill-City View woman, also facing trial on unrelated charges she stole an ill man’s dog and euthanized it.

Pittsburgh animal control officers filed the summary charges against Gisele Paris, 58, in August 2013, accusing her of the following violations: letting a dog run at large, failing to have a required license for a dog, and failing to have proof of a rabies vaccination.

All three were dismissed by District Judge Ronald N. Costa Wednesday.

Her attorney, Robert Mielnicki, said the summary offenses were sent to the wrong address. He also said his client was out weeding Aug. 19 when one or more animal control officers demanded she produce items, including a dog license, and she declined.
