Conviction upheld in Fulton County animal cruelty case

Local

JOHNSTOWN, N.Y. (NEWS10) — An appellate court upheld the 2018 conviction of the man convicted of animal cruelty to more than a dozen mastiff dogs.

In April 2017, Bentley Valdez turned himself in after nine dogs were found dead and another 13 were found malnourished at a property on County Highway 104 in Stratford.

The Fulton County Appellate Court said the sentence of two years in jail for Valdez was not harsh and excessive.
