A Tehama County woman who has repeatedly proven her inability to care for animals has been sentenced for animal cruelty. 58-year-old Roberta Draper has a home on Lariat Loop in the Rancho Tehama area of Corning. She was convicted in Tehama County in 2008 on six misdemeanor counts of animal cruelty, and she was told not to have any more pets. She was then arrested again in November of 2013 when deputies seized 4 dogs, 2 cats, 7 chickens, 4 horses, a goat and a sheep. The charges stemmed from the condition of the horses. She was convicted and again ordered not to take in any more animals. In November of last year the Tehama County District Attorney’s Office heard that Draper had another menagerie, so they went and checked. They found more than a dozen dogs, one of which was dead and others near death. There were also cats, geese, turkeys, and guinea hens. They all looked underfed and there was no food or water accessible to them. The animals were taken by county animal regulation officers. Draper was sentenced last week to 364 days in jail, 240 hours of community service and 3 years formal probation under the terms of behavioral health court.
