An Iowa Park, Texas was sentenced to jail on Friday after pleading guilty to stealing back 24 dogs confiscated from him in an animal cruelty case last year, reports the Dallas News.

In a plea agreement, Lee Allen Miller, 53, admitted to tampering with or fabricating physical evidence with the intent to impair an investigation. Judge Robert Brotherton sentenced Miller to ten years in prison suspended for eight years, community supervision and a $1,000 fine. Miller is expected to serve one month in jail.

Authorities stated the dogs had been living in filthy conditions in Iowa Park where Miller lives. Before the dogs were seized, they lived in metal buildings with no ventilation or lights. The dogs were repeatedly kept in pet carriers ; some with multiple dogs found covered in feces and urine. After the dogs were placed in a temporary shelter at the Iowa Park Animal Shelter, Miller sneaked into the shelter stealing the dogs back. The dogs were later found  hidden in a field near where Miller taught history at Midway School.
