Hermosa man convicted of mistreating about a dozen horses


The Associated Press - November 10, 2017

STURGIS, S.D. - A Hermosa man has been found guilty of mistreating more than a dozen horses between September 2016 and this past January.

LeRoy James, age 62,  of Hermosa was convicted after a recent four-day trial of three misdemeanor counts of neglect, abandonment or mistreatment of an animal.

Authorities say James inhumanely treated 16 horses under his care, including a mare that died. Some of the horses on the property southeast of Sturgis were found running loose after they broke down their pen in search of food and water.

James denied any wrongdoing. He faces up three years behind bars and a fine of up to $6,000 when he's sentenced Nov. 21.
