HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — Stephen Taylor was sentenced Wednesday for charges that he tortured an animal to death.
Taylor was sentenced to 17 years total but had 15 years and 4 months of his sentence suspended. As a result, he will serve a year and eight months.
Police arrested Taylor in November 2016, a week after police investigated his roommate for the same charges.
Taylor had previously been charged with bestiality, but his charges were amended before he entered an Alford Plea.
