Wylie pleads guilty in dog seizure case

SEBRING, Ohio (WKBN) — A woman from North Benton pleaded guilty Thursday in Sebring Area Court to charges connected to the seizure of more than 100 dogs from her property in January.

The seizure happened Jan. 22.

Terri Wylie pleaded guilty to one count of unsanitary conditions and five counts of failure to provide veterinary care.

This is the first medically-related conviction in Mahoning County since the law regarding animal care changed in September 2013, according to Animal Charity. Wylie had to relinquish ownership of all her dogs, which now will be available for adoption. 

No sentencing date has yet been set.
