Stacy Humphrys Biography
Who is Stacy Humphrys ?
Stacy Humphrys and her ex-partner Maria Lee, 47, did not provide adequate food or water for the dozens of pets in their home.
The estranged couple, who were in a relationship for 13 years, also had some of the dogs, including Spaniels and French Bulldogs, who lived in cramped pens in groups of up to five.
One of his pets, a German shepherd, was found almost completely shaved and restrained on an eight-foot leash in a “pool of dog feces,” the Suffolk Magistrates Court heard Tuesday.
The dogs were first discovered after police raided the couple’s home at a travelers’ site, suspecting that all the animals had been stolen, possibly to be sold as locked pets.
However, it was established that all the dogs actually belonged to the couple.
How old is Stacy Humphrys ?
He is 34 year old.
Stacy Humphrys has been jailed and banned for life from keeping pets
Humphrys was already subject to a five-year ban on keeping dogs after he was sentenced in 2019 for failing to properly care for the animals, prosecutor Ashley Petchley told magistrates.
He, too, was jailed for 28 months in 2014 after allowing his horses to swerve on a dual carriageway in Suffolk, killing a 23-year-old man who was driving to his home on Christmas Eve.
Humphrys and Lee, who were living together despite separating in late 2019, were targeted for a police raid on March 20 amid suspicions that their dogs were stolen, which was later found to be untrue.
But police raised concerns about the living conditions of the 67 dogs at Lee and Humphry’s home near Ipswich, Suffolk, prompting an inspection by the RSPCA.
An animal welfare officer reported that dogs, including puppies, were huddled inside the pens in groups of up to five, some with urine and feces in their living areas.
Humphrys was already subject to a five-year banning order
The inspector also found a visibly distressed German Shepherd standing on rotten hay and surrounded by dog feces.
A vet found that five of the dogs required treatment for conditions that included a large bladder tumor and an ear infection.
On August 7, Lee signed a disclaimer placing all the dogs in the care of the Suffolk police.
The magistrates were told how Lee, who lives on profits, owned the 67 dogs because she liked helping her friends and “found it difficult to say no.”
To mitigate, Frank O’Toole said: ‘She really loved all the dogs that she had and she is an animal lover.
She “ She is known among her friends for taking care of dogs and previously she has taken dogs from people who could not take care of them.
“ It is clear that Ms Lee took too many dogs and found it difficult to say no.
She did not set out to deliberately harm animals. There was no free treatment. ‘The dogs were first discovered after police raided the couple’s home at a traveler’s site, suspecting that all the animals had possibly been stolen to be sold as confined pets.
To mitigate Humphrys, Steven Dyble said: ‘Most [of the dogs] seemed to be in very good condition.
“Clearly there has been a drop below standards for all five dogs [requiring additional treatment].”
Humphrys and Lee previously pleaded guilty to one count of not being responsible for animals to ensure their welfare under the Animal Welfare Act of 2006.
Humphrys separately admitted to two counts of violating a five-year disqualification on dog care and was given a 14-week prison sentence and banned from keeping or caring for dogs for life.
Lee pleaded guilty separately to five counts of causing unnecessary suffering to a protected animal and was sentenced to 12 weeks in prison, suspended for one year and prohibited from keeping or caring for dogs for five years.
Chief Justice Sally Donaghey apologized to the couple, from the West Meadows, Ipswich travel site, for contributing to the cost of £ 41,716 incurred in lodging the seized dogs.
Since then, the police and the RSPCA have managed to find homes for all the dogs seized in the operation.
Temporary Detective Superintendent Nicky Wallace, who led the investigation, said: ‘This was an extremely challenging investigation, given the number of dogs involved and the difficulties we faced in establishing the property.
‘I would like to thank our partners, especially the RSPCA for their cooperation and public support. Dogs that have been rehoused will now have the opportunity to have a happier and healthier life, where they will be loved and cared for.
“ We did our best to establish ownership of each of these dogs, but in some cases, it was not possible. When ownership was established and no concerns were raised, the dogs were returned to their owners.
‘The conditions in which some of these dogs were found were clearly unacceptable, and today’s sentence on Humphrys and Lee reflects this. Fortunately, these conditions are unique and are rarely seen in Suffolk. I am thankful, along with the RSPCA, that many of the dogs now look forward to a new life in their forever homes. ‘
