Horse Owner Sentenced to Jail Time

Posted: Updated: June 17, 2008 12:02 AM EDT

A judge found an Augusta County horse owner with a history of animal cruelty guilty again. Tuesday morning, Terry Lynn Sullivan was sentenced to the maximum year in jail for the misdemeanor cruelty charge. But her attorneys already filed an appeal.

We first told you about Sullivan's charge in April after a malnourished horse died on her farm. In the 1990's authorities seized more than a dozen of Sullivan's horses following similar cruelty charges.
