HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) -- A Hutchinson woman charged with neglecting more than a dozen horses has been sentenced to one year of probation.

Sixty-one-year-old Lindasue Adams was sentenced Tuesday after she pleaded no contest to two counts of animal cruelty. She was also ordered not to own horses during her probation and to reimburse Reno County for the cost of rescuing 10 horses from her property.

Adams was scheduled to go on trial Thursday.

The Hutchinson News reports (http://bit.ly/1aUYDHq ) Adams let the county take the remaining three horses from her property. The amount of restitution hasn't been determined.

In April, Reno County Sheriff's deputies found three dead horses on her property and a veterinarian saw 10 horses in need of immediate care.

Adams was evicted from the property where she kept the horses.
