Woman Faces Animal Cruelty Charge
A Mahopac woman is facing charges of animal cruelty that could result in a one-year jail term and $1,000 fine. Authorities found her pit bull wandering in Mahopac with its electronic collar embedded in its neck. Lynne Schiller-Petti, 49, of Route 6N, was released without bail and is due to answer the charge later this month in Carmel Town Court.
