Former Lawrence County Animal Shelter director Bobbie Taylor was sentenced Tuesday to probation and thousands of dollars in fines after being convicted of animal cruelty in February.
The judge sentenced Taylor to 24 months probation and $11,000 in fines.
Taylor was convicted of six animal cruelty charges in February. She had been charged with 15.
The charges date back to 2015, when Moulton police said they received video of her hitting a dog at the animal shelter, which she was running on her personal property.
A search of Taylor's property led to authorities seizing more than 200 animals that they said were living in bad conditions.
