Horse Abuser Sentenced for Violation

Posted: Updated:
RED LODGE -

The man who starved his horses two years ago was sentenced in court for violating the conditions of his suspended sentence.

Carbon County's Jack Martin admitted to owning eleven horses in court Thursday, a violation of the condition that he not own or have possession of any livestock.

Martin and his wife were charged with 27 counts of cruelty to animals in 2011 for starving their horses. Approximately three of their 70 horses died.

The Carbon County Attorney's office says he was sentenced to four years under the guidance of the Department of Corrections with two years suspended. Correction officials will decide if he goes to prison or other treatment programs.

The wife's attorney was not present in court at the time. Her hearing is now set for October 4th.
