Anderson pleads guilty to records falsifying charge related to improper euthanization
MCCRACKEN COUNTY, Ky. — The commonwealth and the defense have reached a plea deal in the Beau Anderson case related to the animal abuse charges at the McCracken County Humane Society.
Anderson's charge of forgery was amended to falsifying business records. Assistant County Attorney Todd Jones made an offer of seven days conditional discharge and a $100 fine in exchange for a guilty plea.
As a result, the complicity to forgery charge against Dalena Hall was dropped. After just 30 minutes of deliberations, a jury found Hall guilty on all 10 counts of improperly euthanizing animals.
Each count, carried a $250 fine. Hall also received 60 days in the county jail.
The judge denied the defense's request for home incarceration but told Hall he would run her fines concurrently for a total of $250.
Beau Anderson will return to McCracken District Court Sept. 28 for his trial in connection to animal cruelty charges.
