A woman will pay a fine and do community service after pleading guilty to abandoning a puppy in Frankfort.

Stephanie Cooper admitted to committing Animal Cruelty in the Second Degree.

She was arrested back in March after she dumped a 5-week-old chihuahua in a box near a river in Frankfort.

A judge Tuesday gave Cooper a 6-month diversion.

It means she won't do jail time if she completes 200 hours of community service for a local animal shelter.

She also has to pay a $180 fine and cannot own or take care of dogs.
