Cop's son sexually abused dead cat and killed 21 others

26-year-old Robert Farmer is sentenced to 16 years for torturing and killing numerous cats. On it informs edition USA Today.

A grisly and weird animal cruelty has come to a close in San Jose, with a serial cat killer sentenced to 16 years in jail.

Along with his 16 year sentence, Farmer isn't allowed to be with 100 yards of the Cambrian Park neighborhood where he abducted the cats and can not own a cat for 10 years. To find the offender was a month after the first disappearance.

Police found a dead tabby in the 24-year-old's auto as they arrested him, CBS reported.

Police found chunks of fur and blood inside the auto.

At the time, local man David Stine said one cat escaped and was later treated by a veterinarian for a "bite that was not an animal bite, as well as the bleeding head injury".

While declining to address the court, Farmer instead wrote a statement that his attorney read on his behalf, blaming meth addiction for what he did.

Surveillance video captured Farmer in the act as he chased and picked up one cat named Go-Go, leading police to him, according to ABC 7.

The conflicting accounts triggered a debate about whether Farmer should be required to register as a sex offender upon release from prison, reported the Mercury News.

"Several cats subsequently turned up dead, including two discovered in a dumpster", the report added.

A necropsy report later found signs of sexual abuse on the animal found inside Farmer's vehicle, including dilated genitals.

26-year-old Robert Farmer, pleaded guilty in October to 21 counts of animal cruelty.

As part of his sentencing, Farmer will not be allowed within 100 yards of the Cambrian Park neighborhood.

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

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

Animal lovers in the audience were pleased with Chatman's decision, including that she took pains to list every cat by name, from "Does" 1 through 11, to others including Angel, Gogo, Rayden, Thumper, Jupiter, Traveler and Tiger.
