NH woman convicted of abusing Great Danes appeals case

By  | 

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) A lawyer for a New Hampshire woman convicted of housing dozens of filthy and sick Great Danes in her mansion is appealing her convictions on animal cruelty charges.

The lawyer says her privacy rights were violated when police allowed an animal rights group to take photos and video as it assisted in gathering the animals from her mansion, and then post the information online to raise money.

A lawyer for the state said the group didn't actually solicit funds after putting out the photos; it explained its work on the case.

She said that Fay lost her right to privacy once the search warrant was issued.
