Johnson City judge to reconsider sentence in cat cruelty case

As reported here in the Johnson City Press (registration required), a General Sessions Court judge will entertain a motion to reconsider the sentence he imposed on an elderly couple found "guilty of 33 counts of cruelty to animals and 14 counts of violating the rabies law." The earlier sentence was "100 days in jail and 10 years of probation," with the proviso that if they are "found to have cats during their probation, the couple could end up spending 7 ½ years behind bars."
