Roy Gross, Chief of the Suffolk County SPCA said that Cynthia Schultes, 53 was found guilty yesterday after a jury trial in Suffolk County First District Court. Ms. Schultes, owner of Quiet Time Shires, had horses that were severely emaciated.
Chief Gross praised the work of the Suffolk County SPCA Detective, the Judge and the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office who worked countless hours on this case. Justice was served for the animals.
