HILLSVILLE — The 14 cruelty to animal convictions against a Hillsville businessman in a puppy mill case have been upheld by a Virginia Appeals Court judge.
This makes the second time a court has refused to overturn the 14 misdemeanor convictions against Lanzie Carroll Horton Jr. resulting from a trial in Carroll General District Court.
Those animal cruelty charges, as well as the 25 animal neglect convictions that went uncontested in this appeal, stem from a national Humane Society and Virginia PAWS campaign to expose puppy mills in the state.
