Ed Scott sentenced to 60 days in jail

ENTERPRISE — Edward Charles Scott, 61 of Lostine, was sentenced to 60 days in jail for animal neglect and contempt of court charges on  Dec. 18. He was remanded to Union County Jail after sentencing.

Scott was arrested and charged with four counts of first degree and 39 counts of second degree animal neglect in March. Failing to appear at the forfeiture hearing, his cattle were taken in and cared for by Wallowa County until sold at auction in April.

In June, he was arrested and charged with four counts of contempt when he moved four head of cattle across the state line into Idaho, contradicting his release agreement which said he was not to have any animals.

According to court documents, Scott will serve 36 months bench probation, he is not allowed ownership of animals for five years from date of judgement and is to have no employment in which he cares for animals. 

When he does find work, he must provide proof of employment to the court and proof that he has informed his employer of his conviction and the fact that he cannot care for animals. In turn, he will provide an outline of his duties of employment to the court and certify that he has made the disclosures to his employer.

In addition, Scott must not possess weapons, firearms or dangerous animals.
