OSSIPEE, NH – The woman convicted of the animal cruelty of dozens of Great Danes in Wolfeboro will not serve any jail time. Thursday morning a judge sentenced Christina Fay to 12 months suspended and pay $800,000 in restitutions.
The Judge also ordered that she would be able to keep only one spayed or neutered dog of her choosing and that she can only own one animal at a time for the rest of her life.
Fay’s lawyers said earlier this week that she plans to appeal the ruling. The judge ruled that is Fay does appeal she will have to post a bond of $2,000 per dog.
In June 75 Great Danes were seized from Fay’s Wolfeboro mansion and 9 were seized from her property in Bartlett. Wolfeboro Police said the animals were suffering from health problems and living in their own waste.
Wolfeboro Police Chief Dean Rondeau said in a press release “The Wolfeboro Police Department is delighted with the sentence ordered by Honorable Judge Greenhalgh, which is consistence with the Rule of Law, fairness and equability. We hope the Defendant accepts the court rulings and moves on from here.”
