Amish farmer Jonas Beachy has been charged with 23 counts of animal cruelty.                               

On October 1, the Ohio Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to animals along with Pickaway County Sheriff's deputies, seized 52 dogs from Beachy's Laurelville farm. Lt. Dale Parish said the OSPCA and the sheriff's investigators gave evidence to the Circleville law director Gary Kenworthy and he filed the charges on Thursday in Circleville's Municipal Court.
"He is being charged because these animals were in such horrendous conditions," Teresa Landon with the OSPCA said.
