SARATOGA COUNTY, N.Y. -- A woman previously convicted of abusing and neglecting horses has been sentenced after violating the terms of her probation.
Ann Arnold was sentenced to time served plus probationary supervision for violating the terms of her probation by keeping horses.
Back in May of last year, Arnold was convicted of 19 counts of animal cruelty and sentenced to three years probation after 19 malnourished and neglected horses were found on her property.
Part of the sentencing meant she was unable to have horses on her property for three years. But last month, Arnold was jailed, after investigators found she was keeping more horses.
Prosecutors say Arnold getting time served and probationary supervision means they can keep a close eye on her.
"We don't want to have to do this again,” said Saratoga County Assistant District Attorney Karen Haggan. “By her continuing to remain on probation, the judge outlined the terms and conditions tonight. We're ensured that someone is going to watching over her and monitoring her for the remainder of her three year probationary term.”
Prosecutors say if she violates the terms again, the consequences will be more severe.
