- Alabama, USA -
On Tuesday, June 30, 35-year-old YOLANDA VALENCIA JONES (pictured below), had a preliminary hearing in relation to aggravated animal cruelty charges that were filed against her when she was arrested in November 2019.
JONES’ case has been bound over to a grand jury.
On October 31, 2019, JONES was transporting a horse in a trailer when his legs broke through the floor, hit the roadway and JONES kept on driving.
Eventually she stopped, tied the severely injured horse to a tree on a private property in the 700 block of Saint Francis Street, and then drove off.
Police were called in.
A veterinarian also responded to the scene, Dr. Patrick First.
The poor horse had lost a lot of blood and suffered life-threatening injuries.
His back legs were broken, and he was not able to stand.
Dr. First made the decision to euthanize the innocent soul.
YOLANDA VALENCIA JONES eventually turned herself in on November 7.
She was booked into Mobile County Metro Jail and charged with aggravated cruelty to animals.
