Fair Play Farm Owners Sentenced for Animal Cruelty

Fair Play Farm

Convicted of animal cruelty the owners of Fair Play Farm were sentenced to two days of jail time and restitution.
The Maine couple, Brett and Alexis Ingraham, must also have limited contact with horses for the next three years unless they are willing to consent to unannounced visits by Animal Welfare Agents to monitor the condition of the horses.
The Ingrahams were ordered to pay fines and $6000 in restitution. According to officials, the restitution is only a small percentage of the expenses associated with the care of the horses after they were seized.

The judge imposed three nine-month consecutive jail sentences, with all but two days suspended. The couple will also serve three years of administrative release.

Fifteen horses and several other animals, including dogs, were seized from the stable last June. The Ingrahams turned the animals over to the state earlier this year to avoid civil proceedings.

Fair Play Farm was a boarding and training stable operated by the Ingrahams.
