Latest Tiger Ranch Update:
Tiger Ranch Linda Bruno Jailed Today ~ Sentencing Delayed! Update Oct 5, 2009!
Linda Bruno faced additional charges in a January 7, 2009 preliminary hearing. Seven charges of forgery, seven felony counts of public record tampering, and previous operation of an unlicensed veterinary practice, were brought before Judge Suzanne Blaschak in the hearing. She's accused of giving rabies shots to 7 cats, and forging a Veteranian signature on vaccination certificates, and running a veterinary practice without a license.
Lin Marie Bruno previously faced 604 counts of animial cruelty, which was scheduled to go to trial today January 20, 2009. Due to the additional charges, this preliminary hearing was held, and a new trial date has been set for July 13, 2009 according to the Defend Tiger Ranch site. She remains free on non-monetary bond, and ordered to have no further contact or care for animals. Her attorney Ron Valasek is trying to consolidate all charges so that there can be one trial. Lin Marie Bruno maintains her innocence, and sternly stands by her no-kill shelter!
So we'll have to wait another six months for the actual trial! All the bumps and turns of the justice system! I'm dying to know the outcome!
