Court Sets Aside Guilty Verdict of Mo. Lawmaker and Cattleman

November 19, 2013

A guilty verdict has been set aside for a western Missouri lawmaker whose cattle escaped.

Johnson County Associate Circuit Judge Garrett R. Crouch II found Republican Rep. Warren Love, of Osceola, guilty of misdemeanor animal abuse last month in St. Clair County, but he set that judgment aside Monday.

Love's attorney had filed a motion earlier this month asking for a new trial or for the guilty verdict to be set aside. The St. Clair County prosecuting attorney now has 30 days to file a motion to reconsider.

The prosecutor said in court documents that Love — who took office in January — did not provide adequate control of his cattle in August 2012.
