SAU horse-theft term upheld

By The Associated Press

The Arkansas Court of Appeals has upheld the conviction and 60-year prison sentence of a woman who was charged with stealing horses from Southern Arkansas University.

The court on Wednesday turned away arguments by 40-year-old Wendi Cox that there wasn't sufficient evidence to convict her.

Authorities say five horses were stolen from the campus in Magnolia in late 2011. Four animals were found in stressed condition in Oklahoma, where one of the horses had been killed. Cox's daughter, Jaci Jackson, was also convicted and sentenced to serve 10 years in prison in Arkansas and 3½ years in Oklahoma.

The court sent Cox's case back to circuit court over a sentencing technicality. The panel ruled that Cox's sentencing form hadn't been properly filled out and ordered the judge to make corrections.

I'd hate to see what kind of sentence she'd would have received if they got her for speeding.
