According to the Richmond Register, a man accused of allegedly breaking a kitten’s two front legs with a golf club has been charged with second-degree animal cruelty — a class A misdemeanor that imposes a fine of no more than $500 and a sentence of 90 days to 12 months in jail.

Prosecutors originally sought a class D felony of first-degree animal cruelty charge against Gary L. Foster, Jr. but failed to get a grand jury indictment. It would have meant a sentence of one to five years in prison.
