YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

A Smith Township woman convicted of keeping 106 dogs under unhealthy conditions has started serving a six month jail sentence.

58-year-old Terri Wylie reported to the Mahoning County jail on Friday as ordered by County Court Judge Diane Vettori one day before.

Wylie pleaded guilty to a total of twelve charges, which included confining animals in unhealthy conditions and failing to provide veterinary care to animals.

Humane agents confiscated the dogs in January when they raided the North Johnson Road property owned by Wylie. Authorities called it the largest seizure of animals in the history of Mahoning County.

Wylie was also fined $1,200, placed on probation for five years, is prohibited from owning more than one dog, and must surrender her kennel license.
