Three people accused of neglecting nearly 100 animals have now been convicted.

Abc27 first brought you this story back in March. Prosecutors are now releasing details of the charges against Paul Leahy, Melissa Brodbeck and Barbara Brodbeck.

The three live in a home on Hess Road in Stewartstown, York County. Officials said they found dozens of animals there in filthy conditions.

Humane officers said the animals included dogs, pigs, cats, birds and other exotic animals. They also said they found a severely malnourished horse covered in lice.

Leahy and both Brodbeck women were sentenced to jail time and fines. Their attorney said they plan to appeal.
