Pennington Co. couple sentenced for horse abuse

Posted:

He will spend five years in jail and she will spend one year. On Wednesday morning, a couple was sentenced for abusing horses. Donald and Terri Harwood did not attend their sentencing, but sentencing went on anyway.

Terri Harwood was sentenced to one year in jail and then eight years probation. Donald Harwood will spend more time in jail than his wife because Judge Pahlke says he did not corporate with the pre-sentencing investigation and he has a lengthy criminal record. He will spend five years in jail and then serve four years probation.  

Back in August a jury found Donald and Terri Harwood guilty of nine counts each of inhumane treatment of an animal. Deputies in January seized 69 horses at their Rapid Valley home.
