Anthony Brian Snyder, 28, and April Nicole Snyder, 27, will be on probation for five years except for 90-day stays in Payne County Jail, and will have the chance for the charges to not show up on their criminal records if they complete their probation requirements. That includes 15 hours of community service with the Payne County CLEAN program for Anthony, and 30 hours of community service within six months for April.
THEY WILL BE ALLOWED TO ERASE THE CONVICTION AND CHARGES AS IF IT HAD NEVER HAPPENED. AS IF THEY HADN'T PURPOSELY LEFT THEIR ANIMALS TO SLOWLY STARVE TO DEATH.
IT EFFECTIVELY ERASES IT FROM THEIR CRIMINAL RECORDS AS THOUGH THESE ANIMALS HAD NOT SLOWLY STARVED AND SUFFERED EVERY MINUTE OF EVERY HOUR OF EVERY SINGLE DAY.
DOES THAT FAT PIG APRIL SNYDER LOOK LIKE SHE EVER MISSED A MEAL?
The charge carries up to five years in prison, up to one year in county jail or a fine no more than $5,000 upon conviction. The couple was arrested May 26 after the landlord of the trailer where Anthony and April lived called the Payne County Sheriff's Office the day prior for evidence of animal cruelty.
The landlord had arrived to the trailer to serve the couple an eviction notice, according to an affidavit filed in the case, only to find one dog dead and the other in a great deal of pain and suffering from "and malnutrition, parasitism, covered in fleas."
A veterinarian attending to the surviving dog said its condition was "caused completely from lack of food, water and care from the owner."
