Kempf got off with a slap on the wrist. Of the 30 misdemeanor counts originally charged with Kempf did a plea agreement that was accepted by Judge Gramlich, which dropped the nine counts of Class A misdemeanors those being the more serious of the charges. The original Judge, Judge Day denied the plea agreement so Kempf requested a new judge which she received. Gramlich accepted the plea which amounted to $1500.00 fine, $802.00 restitution to central Illinois Horse Rescue, 2 years probation, 200 hours of communiity service at an animal shelter, 30 day stayed jail sentence and no ownership of any animal for 2 years. Kempf's attorney then requested the probation be changed to court supervision which means her record will be wiped clean after she meets the other requirements, Gramlich said that Kempf had suffered enough and agreed to the supervision. No justice here for the horses. If any of you know Kempf or know anyone that does, please keep a watchful eye on her, ownership of any animal during the 2 years should nullify the whole plea agreement not to mention save any other animal from such a horrible home.
