Lee County horse neglect case awaits judge's decision

Jeffery Graber was charged with livestock neglect January 8, 2014


A Donnellson, Iowa man accused of livestock neglect could no longer faces charges.


Jeffery Graber's attorney filed a motion to dismiss charges last month.


Assistant Lee County Attorney Clinton Boddicker resisted the motion.


Both sides presented their arguments in court on Tuesday.


Now they await a judge's ruling.


Boddicker told KHQA a decision should come down within the next week.


Graber was charged with livestock neglect January 8, 2014.


Deputies removed several emaciated horses from his property later that month.


A judge ordered the horses returned to Graber in March due to a procedural error by the Lee County Sheriff's Office.


Graber was cited for similar reasons in 2011.


However, no charges were filed following a 2011 investigation.
