The Watertown man who killed two of his roommates cats last year will officially spend the next year behind bars.
Jesse Young pleaded guilty to two counts of animal cruelty in Jefferson County Court Wednesday. It was back in July when Young drowned the first cat in a bathtub, then the following month, he punched the second cat so hard it convulsed before he then snapped its neck.
Young put both cats in plastic bags and then into the freezer. He was given a one-year sentence in jail.
