    Default Wendi Cox gets 60 years in SAU horse theft trial

    http://www.ksla.com/story/21800054/f...au-horse-theft

    EL DORADO, AR (KSLA) - Wendi Cox was sentenced to 60 years behind bars for her part in the theft of 5 horses and equipment from the Southern Arkansas University rodeo team. She will have to serve at least 10 before she is eligible for parole.

    The horses, tack and trailer were taken from the Mulerider Stables at SAU-Magnolia in November 2011. Four of the horses were found abandoned two weeks later in rural McCurtain County. The remains of the fifth were found in early December. "Credit Card" had been shot, his throat was slit and he had been cut into pieces.

    And the punishment fits the crime. Here's hoping she meets up with some very mean women in prison; women who love horses.

    Such a nice bunch of people..

    Both Cox and Hamilton also face cruelty charges in connection with the case in McCurtain County, as well as separate felony theft charges in Columbia County, Arkansas for an unrelated cattle theft case.

    Jackson is due in court for a pre-trial hearing on April 1. A tentative trial date has been set for April 5. Jackson was a Southern Arkansas University student and rodeo team member at the time of the horse thefts. That's all in addition to the felony theft charges also faces in Columbia County.


    In his opening arguments, prosecutor David Butler told the jury that Cox was "throwing her daughter under the bus" in order to avoid prosecution in the case, alleging Cox made up a story that her daughter was raped by a fellow student in order to establish a motive for the thefts.


    Cox's defense attorney John Stroud countered Butler's opening statement Tuesday by telling the jury that it was actually Cox who was being "thrown under the bus" by her daughter and the other defendants in the case: Cox's boyfriend Billy Hamilton and George Barish.

    Let's hope they all throw each other under the bus, and they all get sixty years or more. Especially the little organizer who did this horrible thing, and just to be cruel and vicious. I wonder how many other crimes the mother and daughter did over the years that no one has discovered yet or were not prosecuted? I can't believe this was their first criminal act. In the original stories about these people, didn't the reporters mention previous allegations against them?

    Good.

    I still feel for Credit Card and his owner. Justice can't turn back the calendar and make it never have happened.
