ABC FACEBOOK COURT Robert Farmer was slapped with his 16-year sentence at Santa Clara Court

A man in California has been jailed for 16 years after admitting he stole and tortured cats, killing 18 of them.

This comes after he pleaded guilty to 20 counts of felony animal cruelty, one count of attempted felony animal cruelty, as well as two misdemeanors a year ago.

Back in the fall of 2015, Farmer abducted and killed as many as 16 cats from the Cambrian Park Neighborhood.

"Robert Farmer is a monster who has no mercy and who victimized the most innocent member of our family", said Miriam Petrova, whose 17-year-old cat "Gogo" was among those killed, as quoted by the San Jose Mercury. "Living in a auto with feces, blood, urine, fur, and decomposing cat parts- what a mess", said Wesley Schroder, reading Farmer's statement.

San Jose police found an orange tabby dead in the auto, along with cat collars, fur, and bloodstains.

Wimbledon Women's Final Betting Preview and Odds: Muguruza vs. Williams
Standing in the way of Williams and a drought-breaking eighth Grand Slam title is former French Open champion Garbine Muguruza. She passed her sister Serena on the active Wimbledon win list this year, and her current record stands at 87-14 at Wimbledon.

"It's so hard to grasp I did this", Farmer wrote, adding that he grew up with cats and horses.

Only four cat bodies were found. Residents pointed police to Farmer.

Tests carried out by vets found signs of sexual abuse on a ginger tabby found in Farmer's auto when he was arrested, but the abuse was denied by defence lawyer Wesley Schroeder. The fact that I was out of my mind was no excuse'.

"We are disappointed that the judge did not" require Farmer to register as a sex offender, Goodson said, "but we understand her reasoning, though we may not necessarily agree with it". His attorney, Wesley Schroeder, said his client could be released in as little as 4½ years. Farmer will have mandatory supervision for three years upon his release.

She told NBC News: "We finally can say goodbye to every cat that was involved in this tragedy". He also must undergo psychological treatment, including taking any psychotropic drugs that are prescribed, as well as stay 100 yards away from the Cambrian Park area; specifically zip code 95124. She imposed the maximum sentence, which Farmer will serve in a county jail.
