CONVICTED: Was justice served?
more information on voting
When you vote, you are voting on whether or not the punishment fit the crime, NOT on the severity of the case itself. If you feel the sentence was very weak, you would vote 1 star. If you feel the sentence was very strong, you would vote 5 stars.
Please vote honestly and realistically. These ratings will be used a a tool for many future programs, including a "Peoples Choice" of best and worst sentencing, DA and judge "report cards", and more. Try to resist the temptation to vote 1 star on every case, even if you feel that 100 years in prison isnt enough.

Defendant/Suspect: Katrina Jean Mcclelland
Case Updates: 1 update(s) available
Twenty five horses removed from what Humane Society officials from conditions that resemble puppy mills. Many were Arabians, with one quarter horse. Many were pregnant at less than a year old, as well as a 17 year old mare that may not survive the pregnancy. Five other horses, all colts, allegedly died of starvation. Bodies of two of the dead horses were at the scene when police arrived and served warrants on Katrina Jean Mcclelland, 54. She is charged with 26 counts of animals cruelty. If convicted, Mcclelland faces up to to a $300 dollar fine and a 90 day jail sentence for each count.
Most of the horses were allegedly compared to walking skeletons and were said to be in terrible condition. The barn in which four of the horses were kept was three or four inches deep with manure. The animals had no bedding and food was scarce.
