RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -  Controversy continues to swirl around the CEO of the Richmond SPCA. Robin Starr admitted yesterday that her family dog was left in side a hot car for four hours, ultimately leading to the dog's death.

Attorney Steven Benjamin joined NBC12 to discuss the fallout connected to this story. See his responses in the video at right.

Q: There are criminal charges that could come from a mistake like this, taking the Starr incident out of the picture, what are they?

Q: Now bring Robin Starr back into the picture. What type of evidence in this case would be needed to put forth a credible charge?

Q: Ms. Starr obviously casts a very long shadow. It shouldn't interfere with the investigation, but how can her public persona not come into play?
