York, PA –

Two years after being savagely mauled by two pit bulls, attorneys for Ajia Brown, who was 8 when he was attacked, and an insurance company reached a $500,000 settlement.

York County Judge Penny L. Blackwell authorized the agreement Monday.

Ajia will receive annual $65,000 payments, increasing at 5 percent annually, beginning in 2020 for a total of $406,000.

Ajia’s attorney, Thomas J. Newell, said an additional $8,600 in medical bills paid by the insurance company brings the settlement package to $508,614.

Chester L. Little, of Hanover, was charged with simple assault and reckless endangerment, along with a number of summary dog law violations, for his dogs’ attack on Ajia Brown.

According to Hanover Borough Police reports, the dogs escaped their gated and fenced yard and repeatedly bit the child, chewing off parts of both ears and tearing a large part of scalp away.

Police shot one dog.

The most serious charges against Little were dismissed at trial in April.

He was fined $1,000 for harboring a dangerous dog.

Ajia has undergone numerous surgeries to repair damage to his ears and scalp.
