Four residents have been charged recently with second-degree cruelty to animals.
Amy Brown, 33, and Anthony D. Waldeck, 49, were charged after an officer reported finding several dogs in poor condition on their property on Howardstown Road.
Brown was fined $153 and received a six-month diversion Jan. 11 in LaRue District Court. She was sentenced to five days, suspended, and two-years unsupervised probation.
Waldeck received a diverted sentence. If he has no further violations of the law during that period, the charge will be dismissed.
