In Atlanta, Georgia, a cruel man who videoed himself kicking a cat like a football and then posted the disturbing scene on Instagram was sentenced to jail on Monday.
According to AJCNews, Jamari Leon Davenport, 23, was sentenced to six-months in jail followed by 240 hours of community service for the misdemeanor conviction. The video showed Davenport kicking the cat outside of a gas station in July 2019.
The cat has never been found and how badly the cat’s injuries were is still unknown, however it is feared the cat did not survive. Prosecutors stated:
“… experts opine that the cat was struck and hit the ground with such force as to have lethal consequences.”
Judge Jane Morrision stated the attack on the cat by Davenport warranted jail time. Davenport is not to be with animals or children until after his jail sentence and community service hours have been completed.
