Elisa Kirkpatrick files appeal

An appeal has been filed for a former veterinarian found guilty of animal cruelty charges.

Sixty animals were taken from Elisa Kirkpatrick’s home in Williamson County, Illinois in May 2015.

Investigators say the animals were living in unsanitary conditions.

Kirkpatrick had also been performing surgeries on animals in her home without a license.

On Friday, her lawyer filed a motion to appeal her sentencing. In September she was sentenced to two years probation and no jail time.

He also filed a motion for Kirkpatrick to be represented by an appellate public defender so that she will not have to pay for services.
