Jail time for Md. horse neglect
A husband and wife will spend time in a Maryland jail for fatally neglecting one of their horses.
A Baltimore County Circuit Court judge on Monday sentenced Hilton Silver to 60 days in jail and his wife, Donna Silver, to 30 days.
The judge also ordered the couple pay the county $16,000 for its care of two other horses officials removed from their home in 2009. After getting out of jail the couple will be on five years probation and prohibited from owning horses.
Monday's sentencing was not the first for the couple. They had originally been sentenced to three weekends in jail each, but they appealed their convictions and lost, leading to the new sentencing.
