In Defense Of Animals Applauds Conviction In Charleston, Mississippi Cruelty Case

Woman found guilty of starving dogs

Charleston, Miss. (August 17, 2011) – In Defense of Animals (IDA), the international animal protection organization that operates Hope Animal Sanctuary in Grenada, Mississippi, applauds the conviction of Sherry White and Ricardo Simpson of Charleston, Mississippi on charges of animal cruelty.

IDA’s Hope Animal Sanctuary rescue team aided the Charleston Police Department with the seizure of six severely neglected dogs on June 29. On August 15, Charleston Municipal Court Judge Steve Ross handed down a guilty verdict for the neglect of six dogs. White and Simpson were each fined $600, given suspended six month jail terms, and ordered to pay $123 in court costs.

Five of the six dogs were emaciated and without shelter. One nearly hairless dog was forced to crouch because his chain had become bound around the tree he was tethered to. He had no access to water. The water the other dogs had was contaminated. Four of the dogs tested heartworm positive and all were infested with internal and external parasites. The dogs are recovering under the care of IDA’s Hope Animal Sanctuary.

White was convicted of failure to provide food, water, and shelter for the dogs she kept chained in her backyard. White spread the blame for the condition of the dogs, incriminating Simpson by claiming four of the dogs belonged to him. The dogs suffered from hunger, lack of shelter, parasite infestation, heartworms, and dermatitis.

The city of Charleston calls on In Defense of Animals for their expertise and assistance in cases of animal cruelty. The city is not equipped to handle seized animals, but has a zero tolerance for animal abuse. According to Doll Stanley, director of IDA’s Hope Animal Sanctuary and the leader of the rescue team that saved these dogs, “We have a great working relationship with the city of Charleston and the animals we rescue can only be saved due to community support for IDA’s Hope Animal Sanctuary. We expect to care for the dogs for months before they can be placed, something that couldn’t happen in most municipal shelters.”
