Convicted: Hundreds of animals seized
Sentence: In separate hearings last week in Jackson Magistrate Court, the Mahers each were allowed to plead guilty to two counts of animal cruelty; the remaining charges were dismissed.
Magistrate Tom Reynolds sentenced the two to one year of probation and ordered them to pay restitution to the county animal shelter in the case.
While the Mahers won't be spending any further time behind bars, Bright said that by pleading guilty, the couple will not be able to own any animals in the state for a period of five years.
