You may remember the feckless and reckless Brooklyn cat kicker. His name is Andre Robinson. I wrote about him twice at the time he kicked a stray cat a good distance for the hell of it. The grey and white cat recovered and was adopted by a man who some ladies find attractive! A good ending. He named him “King”.
Well, Andre, God bless him is proving to us all that cat abusers are often general criminals. They have criminal minds and abusing animals is just an extension of their criminality.
Andre Robinson has only recently returned to New York after serving six-months of a four year prions sentence for credit card fraud in another state. He is on four years probation.
The good point is that he is due back in Brooklyn Criminal Court in New York on December 12th to face trial for the cat abuse. If convicted he could be sentenced to a year in jail. Although based on my knowledge of animal abuse cases a maximum sentence is highly unlikely. However, the case has not been forgotten and neither has it fizzled out. It is live and justice may well be done. We like to see that.
