Aurora, NY (WKBW) - The long and drawn out legal process against a woman convicted of 52 counts of animal cruelty is expected to come to an end on Thursday.

Beth Hoskins is expected to be sentenced on Thursday.

It's been nearly three-and-a-half years since the SPCA raided Beth Hoskins East Aurora farm, seizing more than 70 horses.

Back in July, a judge found Beth Hoskins guilty of 52 out of 74 animal cruelty charges.

The SPCA says they found the horses living in feces filled stables, dehydrated and extremely thin.

Even after the verdict, Hoskins maintained her innocence.

Hoskins faces a wide range of possibilities in sentencing, from probation to up to two years behind bars.

She can also be slapped with hefty fines as well.
