Howell Woman Pleads Guilty To Animal Cruelty Charge

Posted: Updated:
(WLNS) - A Michigan woman who had about 90 dogs and puppies removed from her farm has pleaded guilty to an animal cruelty charge.

Komorny entered the plea to the felony charge Tuesday. The Howell Township woman faces up to four years in prison, up to a $5,000 fine and up to 500 hours of community service when sentenced July 17.

The charge arose from circumstances this year at Komorny's Livingston County farm. She also forfeited her ownership rights to puppies and adult dogs that were seized in May. Komorny had earlier denied allegations by authorities that the animals were living in unsanitary conditions.

Investigators found large-breed dogs and puppies living in what Animal Control and the Humane Society say were substandard conditions.

Authorities seized 91 dogs and puppies, and two died. They'll be made available for adoption.
