Taylor County Fiscal Court met in special session Thursday afternoon, August 30th. After a lengthy executive session court members voted in favor of taking legal action to recover expenses incurred related to housing and caring for most of the dogs involved in animal cruelty charges brought against a Taylor County dog breeding operation in March, 2018. Bobby Lee Phillips and his wife, Rebecca Phillips, of Campbellsville were charged with several counts of animal cruelty after 82 dogs were allegedly found to be without adequate food, water, shelter and health care during a welfare check at their dog breeding operation adjacent to Phillips Agri on Greensburg Road in Campbellsville in February, 2018. The case was resolved on Thursday, August 23rd, with Rebecca Phillips entering an Alford plea whereby she did not admit guilt but did admit evidence presented by the prosecution would likely persuade a judge or jury to find her guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. She was sentenced to one year probation. Bobby Lee Phillips was cleared of all charges in the case. The exact amount that will be sought by Taylor Fiscal Court in this case is not yet clear but appears to be just over 130,000 dollars.
