We'll have to wait another couple of months to find out what happens to a Hanna woman convicted of abusing animals.

The sentence was supposed to be imposed on Wednesday, August 22 for Catherine Adams, who was found guilty in February on two counts of animal cruelty, but the judge has postponed things until November 2.
 
At issue is whether the court treats Adams as a first or second-time offender, as she was convicted on similar charges in BC.
 
The Crown prosecutor said he would be seeking jail time for the woman who was charged after nine malnourished horses, 25 dogs and 17 birds were seized from the property she shared with her mother, Karin. Charges against the mother were dismissed, although she has since been arrested in connection with another animal matter in Innisfail.
 
The sentencing of Catherine Adams is set for November 2 in Drumheller Provincial Court.
