Submitted by: jac
FRANKLIN COUNTY, Ind. - A former Indiana police officer pleaded guilty to animal cruelty after his K-9 partner was found frozen to death in a trash bag, according to WWLT.
The former officer, Clinton Ellis, reached a plea agreement this week in the death of his K-9, Blade.
Other reports show that Blade's ribs could be seen from how skinny he had gotten.
On Tuesday, Ellis pleaded guilty to one count of striking or interfering with a law enforcement animal and one count of animal cruelty. On Thursday, he was sentenced to a year in jail, with 311 of those days suspended.
Submitters note: 54 days in jail. Should have been 54 months.
