A man who pleaded guilty to federal horse abuse charges is now facing state charges.
A Fayette County grand jury has indicted Jackie McConnell on 22 counts of animal cruelty.
Back in May, the Humane Society of the US released a video showing McConnell and others beating and whipping horses at his stable in West Tennessee.
McConnell is already serving three years probation and has been fined $75,000 for his federal felony conviction.

For all the cruelty and hardship of our world, we are not mere prisoners of fate. Our actions matter, and can bend history in the direction of justice.
