A Fayetteville woman will spend time behind bars and pay thousands of dollars for animal cruelty.
Washington County Judge Mark Lindsay sentenced 65-year-old Vickie West to 30 days in jail.
West was also ordered to pay $5,000 in restitution to Fayetteville Animal Services.
Authorities removed 25 neglected dogs and a cat from West’s home about a year ago.
The bodies of three dead dogs were also found when authorities seized the animals.
