Sentenced to 16 Years in Prison

He pleaded guilty to 21 counts of felony animal cruelty in October, 2016, reported SFGate. In an interview previous year, Deputy District Attorney Alexandra Ellis said surveillance video helped detectives track the suspect down, "Our hearts go out to the families that were affected by this crime, and we look forward to Mr. Farmer being held accountable for these heinous acts", she said.

Dozens of animal rights activists had joined the victims in demanding a stringent sentence for Farmer, spurred on by an online petition that gathered tens of thousands of signatures.

The cats all went missing in the Cambrian Park area of San Jose in the autumn of 2015.

She said she does not believe he can change and imploring the judge to impose the maximum sentence.

The county's probation department recommended nine years, accompanied by intensive post-release counseling and supervision.

After Farmer is released in 2030, he will be on "mandatory supervision", a strict form of probation, for three years.




"If there was an animal cruelty registry then Mr. Farmer would be the ideal picture for that", Chatman said. Under the conditions set by Chatman, he will not be allowed to own, care for or live with an animal for 10 years.

Farmer, who's dad is a retired captain from the San Jose PD, was apprehended at a Home Depot. sleeping in his vehicle with a dead cat in the center console.

"The judge did everything she could possibly do", said Olena Klingman. Neighbors soon after helped San Jose police identify Farmer as the man in the video, though no trace of GoGo was ever found.

The owners of the dead cats - police say he killed up to 16 of them, though only four bodies were recovered - say that Farmer terrorized their Cambrian Park neighborhood in south San Jose for months, causing pet owners to keep outdoor cats inside as animal after animal disappeared. Ellis argued that Farmer's molestation of the dead cat was sexually motivated but Schroeder proffered other theories.

"It's still painful to come home knowing GoGo isn't waiting for us", Petrova said.

Audience member Gayle Goodson agreed, but said that as a result of the case, the group will explore the possibility of setting up an animal abuse registry in California, similar to the sex offender registry.
