A Youngstown woman who began serving a six-month sentence for animal cruelty in January and was denied early release from jail last month, has asked the court to consider her early release again.

Mahoning County Common Pleas Court received notification Monday asking again for the court to let Rayne Lynn Dunmire, 25, out of jail, after she was charged in late July 2022 when a dead dog was found inside a home in the 200 block of E. Boston Avenue on Youngstown's south side.

In early March, Mahoning County Common Pleas Court Judge Scott Krichbaum entered a judgment denying a motion from the attorney representing Rayne Lynn Dunmire seeking early release.

No date has been set for the response to the request.

Animal Charity agents said the dog and a reptile were left unattended while Dunmire was out of state for several weeks. The reptile was still alive.

After completing her sentence, Dunmire will be on probation for five years.
