Cat killer goes to jail

Judge calls suspect arrogant

February 02, 2012|By Peter Hermann

From the Baltimore Sun's Jill Rosen:

Ethan Phillip Weibman who plead guilty last fall to animal abuse in the death of one cat and the beating of another was sentenced Wednesday to 90 days in prison.

After District Judge Charles A. Chiapparelli’s ruling, officers immediately took the 20-year-old, a short-time Baltimore resident originally from a wealthy hamlet in Westchester County, N.Y., into custody, as his mother shrieked in protest.

“It’s not just a crime, it’s a person I’m sentencing,” Chiapparelli said. “And even on his best day, [Weibman is] an arrogant, selfish, no-goodnik who doesn’t care about anyone else but himself.”
