Very soon, Mainer's will be allowed to vote for what many have dubbed, "Franky's Law". Franky's Law, named after a pug that was kidnapped, beaten, and eventually killed last year, will allow volunteer lawyers or current law students to work animal abuse cases for free. Supporters of the bill say it will give abused animals a voice, and according to WGME, will help courts manage animal abuse cases at little to no cost.

In case you were wondering, 2 men were arrested for the death and kidnapping of Franky.
