An Ulster County, New York woman has been sentenced in an animal cruelty case in Orange County.

Orange County District Attorney David Hoovler says 59-year-old Connie Dirago, of Plattekill, was sentenced in Hamptonburgh Town Court to three years of probation after her guilty plea to five counts of animal cruelty arising from her neglect of more than thirty horses on a property she was renting. The court also sentenced her to about $14,000 in restitution to an animal rescue agency that cared for the horses during the case and ordered that she have no contact with horses for the three years of her probationary term.
