Moore will be back before a judge Feb. 2 on the animal cruelty charges, theft and child support charges.

In the hearing Tuesday, Moore's attorney said they are still working out Moore's ability to attain the same lawyer to represent him on the horse abuse case, as well as the other charges.

Last month authorities discovered a horse graveyard near Bethel where Moore was suppose to be training and caring for the animals.

This case getting a lot of attention in the community because some of the horses were saved.

Those horses are on a long road to recovery, Moore remains in jail on bail.
