Cat killer jailed for 16 years in San Jose, California

Robert Roy Farmer pleaded guilty past year to 21 felony counts of animal cruelty and one count each of misdemeanor battery and being under the influence.

The freakish saga unfolded in September 2015 when cats began mysteriously disappearing from the Cambrian Park neighborhood.

Chatman ruled that the 26-year-old will not be registered as a sex offender, the San Jose Mercury News reported.

Several blood stains were found in Farmer's auto, as well as the remains of one of the cats, when he was arrested in October, 2015.

Farmer, who's dad is a retired captain from the San Jose PD, was apprehended at a Home Depot. sleeping in his auto with a dead cat in the center console.

Santa Clara County Deputy District Attorney Alexandra Ellis dismissed the letter as an attempt to win leniency. The fact that I was out of my mind was no excuse'.

A cat that escaped from his clutches was later treated by a vet for a "bite that was not an animal bite, as well as the bleeding head injury", local resident David Stine said.

Only four cat bodies were found.

"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". One time she said Farmer hit her grandson in the face, unprovoked, and on another occasion he shot the same boy in the leg with a pellet gun.

After Farmer is released in 2030, he will be on "mandatory supervision", a strict form of probation, for three years.

Farmer was also banned from owning or caring for a pet for 10 years after his release, and was given a restriction order keeping him away from Cambrian Park. Farmer's attorney read a statement on his behalf- in it, Farmer blamed his crimes on meth.

"We finally can say goodbye to every cat that was involved in this tragedy", Petrova said. She imposed the maximum sentence, which Farmer will serve in a county jail.
