Gadsden Man Pleads Guilty To Charges Of Aggravated Cruelty To Animals In Connection To 2017 Investigation

A Gadsden man arrested in Cherokee County back in July of 2017 on charges of Animal Cruelty has pled guilty to charges of Aggravated Cruelty to Animals.

According to court documents obtained by WEIS Radio News, 59 year old Leon Junior Green entered an open plea in the courtroom of Cherokee County Circuit Court Judge Jeremy Taylor on Friday.

According to that plea agreement, Green was ordered to pay $419.00 in court cost and $175.00 in bail bond fees and was given credit for four days served in jail. Sentencing in the case has been set for June 27th at 9:00 a.m.

Leon Green and 33 year old LaToya Diane Green also of Gadsden were arrested last year in connection with an Animal Cruelty case involving horses pastured at a location on County Road 32.

The investigation was launched following outcries from members of the community, citing alleging mistreatment of horses owned by the Greens. 

That investigation involved at different stages the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office, Cherokee County Animal Control and the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency.

According to Cherokee County Circuit Clerk DeWayne Amos, LaToya Green’s plea date is set for June, 8th in Cherokee County Circuit Court.
