BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – An animal cruelty case has lasted more than four years, and it’s back in court Wednesday. Beth Hoskins has another hearing.
Hoskins and her attorneys must explain why they failed to follow a judge’s order to sell 33 of her 68 horses. She was ordered to sell them by October.
Hoskins will have another hearing on Friday in East Aurora to address possible probation violations.
This all started in March 2010, when the SPCA seized 74 horses and 53 cats from her property. Hoskins was convicted of 53 counts of animal abuse last year and was sentenced to probation.
Both Hoskins and the SPCA have spent millions in court costs.
