A Plea Agreement Has Been Reached For An Early Woman In The Case Of Over 1,000 Dead Pigs

An Early woman has been offered a plea agreement for a case involving the death of over 1,000 pigs in Sac County. On Thursday, June 30, 34-year-old Elana May Laber was taken into custody following Sac County Sheriff’s Deputies responding to two hog confinement sites located approximately half a mile from each other. Corey AGR Inc. of Lytton owned the pigs, and an estimated $150,000 was lost due to the death of the animals. Laber was initially charged with two counts of first-degree criminal mischief, a class C felony, and two counts of livestock neglect, a serious misdemeanor. According to court records, Laber will plead guilty to one count of first-degree criminal mischief and one count of livestock neglect. She faces up to 10 years in prison for the criminal mischief charge and one year for livestock neglect. Those two sentences will be served concurrently. Her plea hearing is scheduled for Monday, September 26. Remaining charges will likely be dropped after sentencing.
