MAGNOLIA, Ark. —
“The devastation of Credit Card’s owner has been well documented, but the damage that was done to those other horses — the grief and expense to which you put your friends and teammates by nearly allowing those horses to starve to death — made a very serious impression on me at the trial,” he said. “I simply cannot allow you to walk out of this courtroom without being punished.”
After the hearing, Jackson’s attorney told the newspaper the 21-year-old is “totally apologetic” and that she was under the influence of her mother at the time.
“It’s been a long time since I was 18, 19 or 20 years old but I think if my mother or daddy had me do something ) even though I knew it was wrong — I may have followed their lead and done something I shouldn’t have done,” Lusk said. “And that’s what she’s a victim of. Her mother’s serving time and she will be too.”
