NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — The owner of Charles the Monarch is again facing the charge of failure to control animal.

Online court records show that Daniel Painter was released on summons on June 23 for the charge. The offense in this case dates to June 21 — the day after he was found guilty of the same charge.

Painter had appealed an April ruling, where he received a long list of provisions for pleading guilty to failure to exercise proper care and control of his animal.

Part of the provisions was that if Charles was found at-large or loose again, he would be handed over to the city.

He was found guilty during a hearing for that appeal on June 20. Painter received a $1,000 fine, 40 hours community service and was sentenced to two years probation for the June 20 conviction.
