The two faced forty-seven counts of animal cruelty and today they agreed to plead no contest to all 47 counts.
As part of the deal, the couple now faces several fines and stipulations that include a 15 year probation sentence.
They will be allowed to keep the animals they currently have and they can't re-open Haven Acres.
They also are ordered to pay fines, court cost, and must maintain mental health treatment for animal hoarding.
