Sentenced to 16 Years in Prison

     COURT Robert Farmer was slapped with his 16-year sentence at Santa Clara Court

After hearing emotional pleas from pet owners about their slain animals, a judge Friday sentenced a San Jose man who pleaded guilty to torturing and killing cats to the maximum 16 years behind bars.

Robert Farmer, 26, pleaded guilty in October to 21 felony counts of animal cruelty.

Shocking footage captured by a security moment showed the moment that Farmer grabbed a 17-year-old ginger tabby from her owner's front porch.

Farmer will not have to register as a sex offender when he is eventually released, a proposed sentencing condition that had become a point of contention between his attorney Wesley Schroeder and Deputy District Attorney Alexandra Ellis.

Dozens of animal rights activists had joined the victims in demanding a stringent sentence for Farmer, spurred on by an online petition that gathered tens of thousands of signatures.

Cats began disappearing in September 2015 with one escaped feline treated by a vet for a "bite that was not an animal bite".

The intelligence report further suggested that several suicide bombers are now reportedly planning to strike the Valley. Meanwhile, exchange of firing between the militants and government forces was going on at Wantwon Satoora forest area.

"We are disappointed that the judge did not" require Farmer to register as a sex offender, Goodson said, "but we understand her reasoning, though we may not necessarily agree with it".

Schroeder said the county's probation officer had recommended a sentence of nine years, which the judge almost doubled. Farmer won't have to register as a sex offender upon release, which the prosecutor had asked for.

"He likes to hurt living things", Chatman said. He was found sleeping in his auto in October that year with a dead cat in the centre console and chunks of fur elsewhere in the vehicle.

Dr. Sharon Ostermann, a veterinarian for San Jose Animal Care and Services, testified in a pre-sentencing hearing that "Tabby Doe" turned out to have injuries consistent with post-mortem sexual assault. Residents pointed police to Farmer. Crime laboratory reports also stated a match was discovered between Farmer and DNA found under claw clippings.

"The judge did everything she could possibly do", said Olena Klingman.

"It's still painful to come home knowing GoGo isn't waiting for us", Petrova said.
