Horse Abuser Sentenced

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

Convicted Bridger horse abuser, Teresa Martin, was sentenced to serve two years in prison on Friday for violating the conditions of an earlier sentence.

Martin was sentenced in Carbon County District Court to 15 years in prison, with 13 suspended.

The sentence follows an earlier conviction on 27 counts of animal cruelty, after several horses were found starving on her Bridger ranch.

Today's sentence also prohibits Martin from owning any animals, including gold fish, during the duration of her punishment.

She must also undergo a mental evaluation. Last month her husband, Jack Martin, was also sentenced to two years in prison on the same charges.
