The probation violation case against Ann Arnold was adjourned Friday due to the illness of a witness, the Saratoga County District Attorney’s Office said.
Arnold, 60, of Greenfield, is accused of keeping horses on her property in violation of her probation. Arnold, convicted in 2012 of animal abuse for not taking care of horses, is now accused of not notifying probation officials of her change of address prior to moving; maintaining horses at the premises on Nov. 2, 2013; and maintaining farm animals, specifically horses, at the premises prior to restitution being paid in full.
Arnold had been convicted of 19 counts of failure to provide proper food, water and sustenance to the horses on her property and one count of second-degree criminal nuisance. She was ordered not to have horses and to pay $7,000 restitution for the care of her horses while charges were pending.
The case has been adjourned until Wednesday, Jan 22.
