NWA Woman Sentenced to Jail for Animal Cruelty


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.
