Animal Cruelty Case

Animal Cruelty Case
Creighton woman sentenced for animal neglect case
News Staff - May 17, 2017

RAPID CITY, S.D. - A Creighton woman accused of more than 37 counts of inhumane treatment of animals will serve 90 days on work release.

Janelle Gibson pled guilty Tuesday to 20 counts of animal neglect. She was sentenced to 20 years in jail, all but 90 days suspended. She can serve the 90 days on work release with electronic monitoring.

Gibson was also ordered to pay $55,000 in restitution to the Humane Society of the Black Hills; and she cannot own any animals.

Last December, 76 animals were seized from her property. That number grew as seized animals gave birth to litters, bringing the total animal numbers to 138.

As of Monday, only 12 dogs and a cat remained at the animal shelter for adoption.
