Jaci Rae Jackson, the former Southern Arkansas University (SAU) student charged with the 2011 theft of Quarter Horses belonging to members of the school’s rodeo team, has been sentenced in Oklahoma to serve more than 40 months in prison in connection with the incident. 

In November 2011, the five Quarter Horses were taken from the Mulerider Stables on the university’s Magnolia, Ark., campus. Four of the missing horses were recovered in McCurtain County, Okla., and McCurtain County sheriff’s deputies later found the remains of the fifth missing horse.

Arkansas State Police later arrested Jackson and charged her with six counts felony theft of property in Arkansas. Oklahoma law enforcement authorities also charged Jackson with three felonies in connection with the thefts.

McCurtain County District Attorney Mark Matloff said that in 2013, Jackson pleaded guilty in Oklahoma to bringing stolen property into the state, knowingly concealing stolen property, and cruelty to animals. On Jan. 27, Jackson was sentenced to serve 42 months in prison in Oklahoma and 7 months probation in connection with the case, Matloff said
