Bond Ordered at $3,000 Cash for Kiefer in Latest Alleged Probation Violation

Posted: Updated:

The man convicted in the deaths of over 100 hundred horses is back in court for the second time in two weeks for violating his probation.

Judge Bruce Romanick ordered William Kiefer held on $3,000 cash bond.

Romanick ordered Kiefer be placed on electronic monitoring at his own expense if he posts bond.

Kiefer was arrested Monday in Cass County for allegedly having a horse and a mule in his yard.

Sunday Kiefer was seen and photographed at a trail ride in McHenry County on a mule.

Both incidents violate terms of his probation.

Morton County Assistant State's Attorney Gabrielle Goter says Kiefer is willfully violating his probation.

She says the trouble started again after he was taken off electronic monitoring in early July.

"We're hoping maybe this amount the $3,000 will, the electronic monitoring it seemed to have an effect before when he was paying for it and it was in leui of jleitime before so we didn't see this behavior then so I'm hoping that will have some affect," says Morton County Assistant State's Attorney Gabrielle Goter.

Kiefer was sentenced in 2013 to six months of electronic monitoring for nine counts of cruelty to animals in Morton and Burleigh Counties.

Kiefer was also officially charged in McHenry County today with a misdeamonmisdemeanorating a judicial order for his part in the trail ride there.

He's set to appear in court there in September.
