According to the Paulick Report, Kelsey Lefever, who allegedly sold ex-racehorses to slaughter after promising to find them homes, appears to have taken a plea agreement that will result in probation.
Another report, on Pennlive.com states that Lefever has applied to the first offender program that would keep her out of the horse business for the next two years. As part of the deal, Lefever would be barred for life from obtaining a Pennsylvania thoroughbred racing license, which would keep her from participating in the race horse industry in any manner but after the two year ARD program was completed, she would be allowed to continue in the horse business outside of the racetrack.
It really sucks that someone who bragged about sending at least 120 horses to slaughter could get off with a slap on the wrist. Assistant district attorney Francis Chardo II said that because she is a “first offender” sentencing guidelines would likely result in probation.
