Animal Hoarding Couple Granted House Arrest Sentence

By TheNevadaGlobeStaff, April 25, 2024 12:10 pm

Boulder City, NV – A controversial decision in an animal hoarding case has been handed down by Judge Victor Miller. Timothy Miller (79) and Carolyn Luke (73), the couple found guilty of animal cruelty and hoarding charges earlier this year, will serve their two-and-a-half-year sentence under house arrest.

The ruling comes with strict conditions. The couple is prohibited from owning any pets or animals and must undergo counseling. The discovery of nearly 200 malnourished and deceased guinea pigs and rabbits across three locations sparked outrage and led to their initial charges.

Judge Miller’s decision allowing house arrest has likely drawn mixed reactions. Animal welfare advocates may view the sentence as too lenient, while others may consider house arrest an appropriate punishment given the couple’s age and the non-violent nature of the crime.
