Texas: Brenda Luellen (Brenda Kenney) sentenced for animal cruelty released on probation

TEXAS -- A San Angelo woman jailed for animal cruelty was released on probation Wednesday afternoon, according to Tom Green County jail records.

Brenda Luellen, 58, was booked into the jail June 19 after a county-court-at-law judge sentenced her to a year in jail and ordered her to pay $18,625 in restitution.

Luellen’s original charge of animal cruelty stems back to 2008, when city officials removed 69 dogs from her home on Kingsbridge Drive.

Cruelty to animals is a Class A misdemeanor and punishable by one year in jail and up to a $4,000 fine.
