Owners of the Gilbert where more than 20 dogs died were sentenced to 60 days in jail
Owners of the Gilbert where more than 20 dogs died were sentenced to 60 days in jail in Arizona. 20 dogs, now known as Gilbert-20 were stuffed inside a small room with inadequate ventilation and no air conditioning on a hot summer night.
Couple convicted of animal cruelty in the heat-exhaustion deaths of 20 dogs at their kennel were sentenced to staggered 60-day jail terms Friday in a case that drew complaints that Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio used the investigation to garner publicity for himself and damage a political critic. Kennel owners Jesse Todd Hughes and Maleisa Maurine Hughes apologized to dog owners shortly before the punishment was handed down.
Todd was later caught and now the verdict says that he has to serve 23 days in prison and also do community service for 230 hours. Also, they are forced to write a written apology to dogs’ owners.
