Mitigating, Christopher Holt, told the court Foster was lonely and a troubled teenager.
He said: “He’s a very troubled young man who committed a very serious matter which leaves a bad taste in everyone’s mouth.”
I bet the other cons, should they get their hands on him, will show him what a 'bad taste in the mouth' really means...
Sentencing Foster, Elizabeth Hunter, chairman of the magistrates’ bench said: “This is a very nasty offence deliberately causing suffering to this cat.
“We’ve heard the distress caused to this family.
“Clearly you have a lot of problems.
“I sentence you to 12 weeks in prison, you will be banned from keeping animals.”
He must pay £228 in costs and compensation.
It's nowhere near long enough. We all know he won't serve the full sentence. But I hope it feels like it.
