Update on Petition that was started early 2012…and she was just sentenced this May of 2013
Sarah Rust: Jail time from May 08,2013 till June 14,2013.
Then, 275 days on probation under Hamilton County Community Corrections that was then filed under the Residential Project Contract. She is not to consume any alcohol or be in a place where alcohol is the primary product served. She has to participate in anger counseling, and a CARE evaluation and treatment.
The petition is not a victory although it was delivered to the targets and although she was found guilty.
She did not get the maximum penalty for Class D Felony she committed and because she still gets to be around animals. For a class D Felony the maximum is 3 years in the state of Indiana.
The petition is now closed. As it is done for each petition, we wanted to give the end result of the justice system. This time, it has failed for animals. We will not give up as long as we have the support and dedication of caring animal advocates.
Thank you very much to all that signed and shared the petition.
