GREENEVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- A federal jury in Greeneville, Tennessee has convicted a woman accused of selling sick dogs to buyers.
Jurors found Gina Price guilty Monday on seven of the nine charges against her.
The most serious charge Price was convicted of were two counts of wire and mail fraud from the puppy-selling business.
Customers complained they were misled to believe the dogs would be healthy.
Instead, they reported during the trial that the dogs had genetic or contagious diseases.
A few pets died shortly after adoption.
The jury also found Price tried to hide from the government the more than $1 million she made on her kennel and submitted false Social Security documents.
