Cleveland woman sentenced to jail for feeding stray cats


She acknowledges repeatedly violating a city ordinance making it illegal for people to feed dogs and cats that aren’t their own. The 79 year old woman was sentenced to jail after her fourth appearance in court for the violations claiming she lost her husband and her own cats in 2017 and she began feeding the cats because she’s lonely.

But now Garfield Heights Municipal Court Judge Jennifer Weiler wants to hear the case herself after a jail sentence handed down to Segula by a city magistrate last week was widely criticized.
