(PAOLI) - A Paoli woman is looking to spend a lot of time at home, after being sentenced to home incarceration for animal cruelty charges.

40-year-old King was sentenced last week as a part of her plea agreement with Orange County prosecutors.

She will serve the sentence through home incarceration.

King pleaded guilty to one count of cruelty to an animal with the remaining 19 counts being dismissed.

King was sentenced to one year at the Orange County jail, with 185 days suspended, including credit for 14 days previously served and day-for-day good time credit for each day of actual incarceration. A final judgment and sentencing order in the case shows that the balance of King's executed sentence will be served on home incarceration with electronic monitoring through the Orange County Probation Department.

She also was ordered to pay a $1 fine, court costs of $168 and probation user fees totaling $210.

King was arrested in Louisville in May after the removal of 20 poodles from her home east of Paoli on May 8.

King was arrested in Louisville on 20 counts of cruelty to an animal in connection with a case involving the removal of those poodles from a home east of Paoli on May 8.

The Orange County Sheriff's Department received a notification from a local utility crew about dogs being confined in an abandoned home on U.S. 150 near Tater Road.

Veterinarian Dr. Bill McDonald was called to the scene. He found two dogs that were suffering from maggot infestations and took them to his office for treatment. The remaining dogs, all of which were covered in their own waste, were taken to the Orange County animal shelter in Paoli. One of the dogs died the night the animals were found.

According to those on the scene, the dogs were found standing in 2 to 3 inches of feces and someone had been feeding the dogs, but only enough for them to be kept alive and the food had been dumped in the dogs' crates in the dog's waste

40-year-old King is the owner of the property and works as a vet technician at Metropolitan Veterinary Specialist in Louisville.
