This morning I had an informative and much appreciated conversation with an Attorney in the Minnehaha County State's Attorney's office.
This is the info. that is public knowledge:
Larry Pahl has entered a guilty plea to one count of inhumane treatment, involving a 2 year old Belgian mare. sentencing is scheduled for July 12.
A second person (first name is Eileen) has said "not guilty" to one count of inhumane treatment, involving a young buckskin. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for June 10.
That's about all I know, but I think we can go with the relief that "our Aspen" is being represented!
