FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (AP) — A judge has allowed new evidence to be introduced in the trial of the former director of a Massachusetts greyhound rescue organization that is facing an animal cruelty charge.

The MetroWest Daily News reports the lawyer for 72-year-old Louise Coleman fought against adding the two boxes of documents during Monday’s hearing. He argued that it was unfair for the prosecutor to present new evidence so soon before trial.

The judge ruled both attorneys could use the evidence for trial.

Coleman is the former head of Greyhound Friends Inc. She was charged in March after investigators found she allowed dogs to live in unsanitary conditions. Inspectors said sick dogs were not diagnosed or treated for infectious and contagious diseases.

Coleman has pleaded not guilty.

Her trial is scheduled for Nov. 28.
