Man who admitted to not feeding Lainey may withdraw plea

By WKTV News

(WKTV) - Ian West, who admitted failing to feed his estranged wife's dog Lainey for several weeks leading up to the dog's death, may withdraw his guilty plea.

West, of Camden, pleaded guilty to aggravated cruelty to animals in exchange for a sentence of five years probation. West was supposed to be formally sentenced Monday in Oneida County Court. However, his new attorney asked for more time so West could consider withdrawing his plea.

West is due back in court Feb. 20 to let the judge know if he's going to stand by the guilty plea.
