STEPHENTOWN, N.Y. -- A Stephentown man accused of neglecting several horses is expected back in court Thursday night.

Christopher Stevens, 26, was arrested by State Police in early October and charged with three counts of Failure to Provide Proper Sustenance, a misdemeanor. 

Police say concerned citizens contacted them regarding the horses on Stevens' property, which appeared underfed. 

On September 25, 2013 Stevens agreed to donate his two thinnest horses to Little Brook Farm so they could be provided with immediate care. Based on the condition of one of the remaining horses, and the unhealthy and unsanitary conditions the animals were in, the State Police executed a search warrant on the Stevens property in an effort to relocate the remaining two horses and secure any associated records documenting the animals.
