(KSL News) A group lobbying to make animal cruelty a felony faced another setback today.

Man Sentenced for Putting Dog in Oven is Out of Jail Early

Henry the dog was put in a hot oven by his owner's ex-husband. He became one of the motivations behind a bill at the legislature to increase penalties for animal cruelty. The bill failed to pass at the legislature.

Now, Henry's abuser, Marc Vincent, was released from jail a month and a half before he completed his sentence, even though the judge said there was no chance of early release.

We've been making calls to the state courts, Salt Lake County Sheriff's Department and the jail to find out why Vincent was released early, but haven't gotten any answers.
