Mona Kanciper was acquitted in October of felony aggravated animal cruelty charges after a bench trial. She was convicted only of misdemeanor endangering the welfare of a child for euthanizing a dog while a horse riding student was present.
The conviction carries a maximum sentence of 1 year in jail.
"She's upset about this entire case," Gianelli said of Kanciper, owner of Butler Farms and New York Horse Rescue. "She's upset about being convicted for giving an injection in front of a child."
Prosecutors had accused Kanciper of cruelty for allegedly euthanizing three dogs. Hudson, in his decision, said evidence indicated there was justification to do so.
