Man Kills Kitten Gets NO Jail Time sign now

Please respond immediately and forward as appropriate.





An Indiana man who reportedly and recently pleaded guilty to fatally


torturing a kitten won't spend a day in jail. In fact, he can go to


any local shelter and adopt any number of animals, if he so wishes.


Please let his sentencing judge hear from you.





The convicted is Thomas L. Head, 48, of Vanderburgh County, Indiana.


Last year, Head reportedly tormented the kitten's disabled guardian


by grabbing her kitten and proceeding to choke the animal and swing


her by her tail. Head then allegedly slammed the kitten into a


utility pole. He later evidently pleaded guilty to the ensuing felony


charge of cruelty to animals.





On October 3, Judge Carl Heldt apparently accepted a plea agreement


that does not require the felon to serve a single day of the three


years behind bars he thus faced. With Head's attorney reportedly


arguing that his client's crime was related to a problem with


alcohol, Judge Heldt sent Head to a substance abuse treatment


facility for one year and left his judicial answer at that.





Kindly suggest that a man's having had "a few too many" is an


insufficient explanation for the torturing and killing of a


defenseless animal. Please help His Honor realize the urgency of


properly sentencing (via lengthy bans of contact with animals and


incarceration in addition to psychological intervention) those


convicted on cruelty-to-animals charges. You may wish to cite the


evidence suggesting that properly sentencing cruelty offenders keeps


the community safe as well

    I doubt this man would be facing the same consequences if it were a human he had killed. This kitten was as innocent as any human, and I really think that's all that matters when deciding how serious to look at this case. I hope the right thing is done. C
