WEST UNION, Ohio – A woman has been convicted of eight counts of cruelty to animals, a second degree misdemeanor.
According to the Adams County Prosecutor’s Office, Judy Lynn, 55, of Bowling Green, was found guilty of eight counts of cruelty to animals after a three-day jury trial.
According to court information, an Adams County jury found Lynn guilty of failing to sufficiently feed eight horses, one of which died.
The offenses occurred on 600 McCarty Road in West Union, Ohio. A veterinarian who examined the surviving horses testified that the horses were malnourished and in poor condition.
“These animals suffered from starvation with one dying,” said lead prosecutor Barbara Moore. “This type of neglect is never going to be acceptable.”
Moore thanked all law enforcement and animal protection officials whose efforts resulted in the case’s prosecution.
Lynn’s sentencing hearing will be set at a later date before Judge Alan W. Foster.
