NEW CANEY WOMAN GETS ONE YEAR FOR ABUSE OF HORSES -VIDEO

****************************ORIGINAL STORY 2/5/14 *************************************************************************************

Montgomery County Precinct 4 Livestock Officers responded to the 27200 block on Northcrest Circle in the Northcrest Subdivision Wednesday afternoon. In hand was a seizure warrant for fifteen horses, seven dogs and five cats.

Deputies had been out in the past and discovered the condition of the animals. They also identified three horses which were dead and had been for several months. One of those horses was in a stall.

Shortly after they arrived the SPCA came in and started documenting and loading the animals. A veterinarian with SPCA found two of the fifteen horses were in such bad shape that they may not make it through the night.

The owner of the horses, Kimberly Ann Adams could face several charges of cruelty to animals.

According to neighbors of this community, residents are allowed to keep one horse for every ten acres of land they own. One neighbor said that Adams formerly showed horses on a circuit and they were expensive registered horses.

Due to financial problems she was unable to keep up with all the animals and had formed a bond with them that she refused to let go of. Deputies say to feed that many horses could cost upward of $2500 a month, even more in the winter when extra calories are needed.

***************************** WEDNESDAY , AUGUST 5, 2015 **************************************************************************************************

A jury found Adams guilty Wednesday afternoon of abuse to livestock animals. Minutes later they assessed the maximum sentence of one year in the Montgomery County Jail. During the trial this week Adams denied her guilt. Several witnesses came forward including the tearful previous owner of one of the horses found dead in it’s stall. Even her own children testified against her.

When the case finally went to the jury it didn’t take long for the guilty verdict.

In the punishment phase , Adams attorney asked for probation as he said Adams still trains and apprises horses. Adams then took the stand and told the jury how she respected their decision. She repeated it multiple times . It was then the Assistant District Attorney put a question to her, “If you respect the jury’s decision why after they found you guilty were you in the hallway on your phone talking about how you planned to appeal this case. Adams had no answer and tried a quick unsuccessful conference with her attorney.
