REDDING, Conn. -- Lisa Lind-Larsen, a 76-year-old Redding woman who was accused of neglecting her two horses, has applied for a supervised diversionary program that could erase the animal cruelty charges, according to the News-Times.

Lind-Larsen, whose trial was set to begin this week, has been acting as her own attorney, the story said. She was charged in 2014 with two misdemeanor counts of animal cruelty after her horses were found emaciated and neglected, said the News-Times.

The diversionary program is for people with psychiatric issues who are accused of crimes that are considered not serious. If granted admission, Lind-Larsen would be referred for up to two years of treatment, and once completed her charges would be dropped, added the News-Times.
