There were protesters outside the courthouse, including a woman who bought a dog from the couple.

Two months ago, police raided the couple's Campbell Avenue home, where they say nearly 100 abused animals -- dogs, cats, ferrets and birds were rescued. Detectives say the animals were mistreated, starved and caged.
