In lieu of 20 days in jail, he is sentenced to 10 days of community service. He owes $575 in fines and court costs and is not allowed to own or take care of any pets during his probationary period. He is to obey all court orders including the payment of monies owed to the court during his probation.

    What a joke, the punishment certainly does not fit the crime. Why doesn’t the court take animal cruelty seriously? This person should NEVER be able to have a pet again in their lifetime, the fines need to be increased, and the jail time enforced rather than probation and community service. Animals who are tortured do not have a voice, they are innocent victims and need protection.

    Glad to see that he had to pay “court costs”. Wouldn’t want him to completely get away with it. I can’t see where that pitiful amount of community service or probation does anything to change behavior. Shame on our court system!
