Kelso woman jailed for dangerous dogs

Associated Press

LONGVIEW — A Kelso woman accused of hiding dangerous dogs from officials has been sentenced to four days in jail for failing to register her dogs and other violations.

The Daily News of Longview said Ingrid Sacha, 45, was convicted Thursday in Cowlitz County District Court. She’ll begin serving her sentence Monday.

Sacha is accused of hiding four German shepherds that were declared dangerous by the Cowlitz County Humane Society. The dogs have not been found. Court records show they bit at least eight people.

During a bench trial, the judge found that Sacha did not keep her dogs properly contained and did not get the required insurance coverage for the dangerous dogs.

She was also fined $243 for the misdemeanors.
