An Allen Parish couple charged with defying a state snake permit law and mistreating animals has will be arraigned on Sept. 2.

David Beauchemin and his wife, Tawni, are charged with 21 counts of simple cruelty to animals and one count of  possession of snakes longer than 12 feet without a required state permit.

They also face charges of violating interstate commerce by selling snakes that were not legal to possess; theft of less than $300 by fraud; telephone harassment; and cyberstalking.

The Beauchemins were arrested in March after authorities received a complaint that they were illegally selling animals on the Internet.
