The Columbus City Attorney's Office is looking for a former member of their 'Dirty Dozen Animal Abuse Suspects' who is wanted again.

Christa Badgley, 28, was arrested last summer after being featured as part of the 'Dirty Dozen’ which were the most wanted animal cruelty suspects from Central Ohio.

She was originally charged with 4 counts of Cruelty To Animals, 4 counts of Abandoning Animals, and a Violation of Protection Order.

Badgley and her mother were accused of abandoning sick cats and dogs in a filthy trailer. Christa Badgley pleaded guilty to charges and was placed on probation for five years.
