A Posey County woman pleads guilty to most, but not all of the animal cruelty charges she faces.

Carol Leach pleaded guilty to 61 misdemeanor counts of animal cruelty during a court hearing Thursday afternoon.

Superior Court Judge Brent Almon accepted her plea.

Leach still faces four felony charges of torturing animals. She stands trial on those charges later this month.

Posey County Prosecutor Travis Clowers tells Eyewitness News Leach will be sentenced after the trial.
