About 15 supporters of former Stamford Animal Control Manager Laurie Hollywood were gathered outside state Superior Court in Stamford Tuesday morning for Hollywood’s third appearance before a judge.

In June Hollywood was charged with three counts of reckless endangerment and at her last court appearance earlier in July she pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Next to the court’s driveway Tuesday morning, Hollywood’s supporters held signs saying “Laurie Innocent, City Guilty” and “Laurie Guilty of Compassion.”

Hollywood was charged after investigators found that on three separate incidents in which Hollywood allegedly placed dogs with known violent histories without informing the adopting families.

“Laurie maintains her innocence, and for nine years, she has acted in the best interest of the community first and the animals second,” Hollywood’s lawyer, Mark Sherman, said at her last appearance.

At her last appearance one woman came dressed in an orange-and-black Tigger costume.
