Prison sentence for animal cruelty

The High Springs Herald reports on a case of animal neglect that resulted in a prison sentence of one year and one day. The case involved four dogs that were neglected and exposed to deplorable conditions. The prosecutor in the case, Geoffrey Fleck, hopes the case will send a message to people to take better care of their animals. "I respect the sanctity of life in any form it takes," Fleck said. "And especially helpless animals that depend on us."
