Wilds was convicted of animal cruelty in 2000 in the Administrative Court of Prince Georges County MD (case #9901329).

Wilds received a 10 year suspension effective August 7, 2000 and was fined $2000 from the AKC based on conduct considered prejudicial to the best interests of purebred dogs in connection with the convictions in Administrative Court of Prince Georges County MD.
On January 12, 2000 after numerous requests by Animal Control for her to correct the conditions, a search warrant was issued and 26 animals were seized from her home in Hyattsville, Md. (18 dogs, 6 cats & 2 kittens).
