BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - A western New York horse breeder previously convicted on 52 misdemeanor counts of animal cruelty has been found in contempt of court for failing to sell 33 of her horses.

The Buffalo News reports (https://bit.ly/13oUbSV ) that Beth Lynne Hoskins of Aurora was held in contempt by a state court judge Thursday for failing to sell the horses as the judge had ordered in May. The contempt ruling stems from a related civil settlement reached with the SPCA.

Hoskins also is accused of violating some of her probation conditions related to sentence handed down last year in the animal cruelty case of three years of probation. That sentence is being appealed.

Hoskins told the newspaper she did not want to discuss the recent developments.
