February 21, 2019 01:03 PM
A Troy couple facing more than a dozen charges of animal abuse is due back in court next month.
David and Michelle Hempstead were back in court Thursday morning to have their hearing postponed.
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.
