A Shelbyville man has been sentenced to three years in prison for aggravated cruelty to animals. 26-year-old Robert J. Scribner pled guilty to the charge on Friday.
Shelby County State’s Attorney Gina Vonderheide says Scribner intentionally kicked his chihuahua dog in the face, breaking its jaw, and then stomped on the dog’s head.
Vonderheide says Scribner’s behavior in this incident is not normal and not something she sees every day.
Scribner was originally charged in early July.
