Immigration officers are moving to have Rad­oslaw Czerkawski, the accused abuser of Puppy Doe, deported back to Poland once his case is closed.

Czerkawski, whose work visa expired in September, is facing five years in jail for each of 11 counts of animal cruelty and a charge of misleading a police investigation in Quincy, according to the Boston Herald. He is being held on $500,000 bail at the Norfolk House of Correction.

“Following the adjudication of his criminal charges, 
Mr. Czerkawski will be turned over to [U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement] and placed in removal proceedings,” ICE spokesman Khaalid Walls said in a statement, regarding a detainer issued on Czerkawski. “Detainers are critical to ICE achieving its mission to identify and remove criminal aliens.”

Czerkawski was living in Quincy and working as a home health aide for an elderly dementia patient. She passed away on Aug. 31, the same day Puppy Doe was discovered and put down due to the extent of its injuries.

Czerkawski is also facing larceny charges for allegedly stealing 11 checks from St. Lawrence Martyr Church in New Bedford, police told the Herald.
