CLEVELAND- An Akron woman, whose dogs went on a rampage in March, mauling four people in two separate attacks, pleaded no contest to several charges against her Friday morning.

The woman's three three pit bulls were put down and their owner, 58-year-old Diane Yanke, was charged with 21 criminal counts related to the attack on the four residents.

In April, Akron city prosecutors told FOX 8 News it's the fourth time Yanke's dogs had been involved in incidents since September.

The charges against Yanke include having vicious dogs, causing serious physical harm and operating a kennel. Other charges include not having her pit bulls properly secured, properly insured or vaccinated.

In court Friday, she was found guilty on seven of the 21 charges.  She will be sentenced on Sept. 20.
