A 31-year-old Nebraska man has been sentenced to 15 to 20 years in prison for letting more than 200 head of cattle die. According to multiple sources, Aaron E. Ogren, of Exeter, was sentenced on Tuesday for seven charges stemming from the cruel situation.

Ogren was arrested in April after the authorities found over 200 dead cattle, and a dead horse, on rural property in Exeter. The animals were under Ogren’s care at the time. It was also determined that Ogren had sold livestock that he did not own.

The York News Times outlines the breakdown of Ogren’s sentencing:

For unlawful taking, with a value of more than $5,000, Ogren was sentenced to a term of 15-20 years in prison with credit for 18 days already served.

For illegal selling/trading/disposing of livestock, he was sentenced to a term of four years in prison, to be served concurrently.

For another count of illegal selling/trading/disposing of livestock, he was sentenced to another term of four years in prison, to be served concurrently.

For three convictions of attempt of a Class 3 felony, he was sentenced to two years for each – but to be served concurrently.

For abandoning/cruelly neglecting livestock, causing bodily injury/death, he was sentence to two years in prison, to be served concurrently.

The court determined that Ogren did not have the ability to pay restitution for the massive losses.

Part of the sentencing also mandates that Ogren not be allowed to own/possess animals for 15 years from the time that he was convicted.
