Robinson enters Alford pleas in Trimble animal abuse case

Managing Editor
Marlena Robinson entered Alford pleas last week to one count of cruelty to animals (Class A misdemeanor) and one count of improper disposal of animal carcasses (class B misdemeanor) in connection with the finding in February of numerous equine corpses on her farm on Perkinson Lane in Trimble County.
In an Alford plea, the defendant does not admit the act and asserts innocence, but admits that sufficient evidence exists with which the prosecution could likely convince a judge or jury to find the defendant guilty..
