It was a barn of horrors, Swift Justice investigative producer Art Harris reports in this shocking case of animal abuse: 40 starving horses removed from an Oregon landlord’s barn after she was paid to care for them.
Last Friday, April 29, Harris exposed defendant Christina Early’s past, revealing Humane Society photos of horses with ribs sticking out, so hungry sources told him, they were chewing up and chowing down on the wood in their stalls. “It looked like beavers had been there,” a whistleblower told him.
Landlord Christina Early countersued her tenants for slander for allegedly spreading lies about her, but we discovered she’d plead guilty to multiple counts of animal cruelty in Oregon, even admitting to providing sub par care and selling one horse she was boarding and telling the owner it had died…
Early was making her case when Nancy Grace called on Harris who reported he’d found court records of her guilty pleas, an order to pay $45,000 in restitution, including a sentence of community service after local sheriff’s deputies acting on a tip, descended on her property and found the gaunt animals. The local Human Society hauled them away to shelters and the restitution was designed to care for the animals and reimburse the owners.
But it was not to be; she wasn’t making payments, so the judge revoked her probation, Harris told Nancy Grace, and slapped her wtih more community service and fines–and mental health evaluation. Early listened with no reaction.
But Nancy Grace was shocked. Watching the photos of the horses, ribs sticking out, the undefeanted former prosecutor who has seen it all held hand over mouth, horrified, then turned to the defendant, Christina Early.
“I’ve never said this to anyone on this show before,” she said, “but you disgust me.”
Then she ordered her out of the studio courtroom. “You owe the plaintiff $5,000, the full amount. Now get out!”
