Boonsboro woman sentenced in animal cruelty case

May 29, 2008

A woman who pleaded guilty to an animal cruelty charge in March was sentenced Wednesday to 15 months of probation, during which she is forbidden from responsibility for any pets or animals, Washington County District Court records show.

Patty Burkett, 64, of 215 Maple Ave. in Boonsboro, was charged along with another woman after Humane Society officials reported finding dead and malnourished doves in their Smithsburg home in December 2007, court records show.

Burkett pleaded guilty to failing to provide a dove with nutritious food in sufficient quantity, proper drink, air, space or veterinary care, according to court records.
