CONVICTED: Was justice served?
more information on voting
When you vote, you are voting on whether or not the punishment fit the crime, NOT on the severity of the case itself. If you feel the sentence was very weak, you would vote 1 star. If you feel the sentence was very strong, you would vote 5 stars.
Please vote honestly and realistically. These ratings will be used a a tool for many future programs, including a "Peoples Choice" of best and worst sentencing, DA and judge "report cards", and more. Try to resist the temptation to vote 1 star on every case, even if you feel that 100 years in prison isnt enough.

Defendant/Suspect: Trevor Jefferson
Trevor Jefferson, 23, of Lunenburg was given a suspended sentence and will be on probation for 12 months and must make a $500 donation to the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Jefferson will also pay $112 to cover the veterinary costs of treating the cat.
Jefferson pleaded guilty to a single count of committing cruelty to an animal when he shot the cat with an arrow which entered through the cat's hest and stuck through its left side.
The cat was discovered Christmas Day in the backyard of a house in town. As a results of its injuries, the cat had to be euthanized.
Judge Anne Crawford said Jefferson's actions were "very stupid."
