Texan jailed in Iowa for trying to release minks
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — A 22-year-old Texas woman has been given 60 days in jail for trying to release minks from a Sioux City farm.
Kellie Marshall had pleaded guilty in Woodbury County District Court to releasing an animal from an animal facility and attempted third-degree burglary.
The Sioux City Journal Judge Steven Andreasen suspended a five-year prison sentence and 305 days of jail time for Marshall. Marshall was five years of probation as well.
Marshall and 24-year-old Victor Vanorden, also of Austin, were found in a soybean field in October before they could release the animals. Officers found fences nearby that had been cut.
