PROVIDENCE, N.Y. - The Saratoga County woman convicted of animal abuse and sent to jail after violating terms of her probation was sentenced Monday in Providence Town Court to time served.
She will also not be allowed to have horses on her property, nor her brother's property in Greenfield.
Arnold was charged in 2012 with numerous counts of failing to provide food, water and sustenance to her horses at her home at 131 Wilton Road in Greenfield.
Arnold did not say a word as she was taken into custody on February 26th, after violating an order from the court to not own or keep any farm animals during her three years of probation.
Saratoga County District Attorney's Office tells NEWS10 Arnold still had three horses on her brother's property, which is where she told her probation officer she had been living.
As of now, all of the animals have been transferred to a riding-boarding facility in Wilton.
Linda Davis says she frequently drives by Arnold's address
on Wilton Road in Greenfield and has seen the horses firsthand.
"It's just sickening," she says. "Rib
bones sticking out, hip bones sticking out. I don't even know how they
were alive at that point."
The Saratoga County first assistant distric attorney says
Arnold will be closely monitored for any further violation of her probation,
which clearly states she cannot keep or be around any farm animals.
"We don't want to deal with this again," says
Karen Heggen. "By continuing to remain on probation, which again the
judge reiterated, we're insured someone is going to be monitoring and watching
over her for the remainder of the three years."
