Success: Serial Cat Killer Given Maximum Punishment

Target: Sharon A. Chatman, Santa Clara County Superior Judge

Goal: Thank judge for delivering the maximum possible penalty for a man found guilty of torturing and killing over a dozen cats.

A man recently convicted of torturing and slaying over a dozen cats will finally be spending time behind bars thanks to a judge’s decision. The man, 26-year-old Robert Farmer of San Jose, California, had wrangled neighborhood cats while under the influence of methamphetamine before torturing and murdering them. Now, thanks to outcry from pet owners, and petitions such as this one from ForceChange, the judge has agreed that Farmer poses a threat to society and has sentenced him to 16 years in jail — the maximum penalty allowed under law.

The killing spree had occurred over a two-month period in 2015. Video footage showing a man luring cats into his backpack had led investigators to the man’s vehicle in a parking lot, where they discovered him sleeping next to a dead cat in a trash bag and evidence strewn throughout the car of his grisly exploits. A necropsy revealed that at least one cat may have been sexually assaulted.

While Farmer’s case was delayed numerous times thanks to his defense attorney, he eventually pleaded guilty and will now be paying for his horrific crimes while pet owners can get the closure they need knowing justice has been served. Sign this petition to thank this judge for standing up for the animals and making sure this serial cat killer will be off the streets for years to come.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Judge Chatman,

We thank you for ensuring that Robert Farmer, the man who tortured and killed over a dozen cats, will face the maximum penalty for his crimes. The unthinkable cruelty and savagery these cats were subjected to has haunted their owners for the past two years, and it is high time that justice was served.

Cases such as Farmer’s highlight the need for animal abuse registries nationwide, but in the meantime we are grateful for instances such as this where justice is served. We, the undersigned, wish to thank you for giving these pet owners the closure they need and for keeping animals safe.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    What GOES around, COMES around. Robert Farmer MEET Bubba. (Hopefully your new cell mate) See what TORTURE feels like.

  5. I have been following this case from day one and I am beyond happy to see that judge Chatman took this seriously, even though I would have given him life for taking away so many beautiful and innocent lives. Unfortunately, theye are many, many more sick and vial people like Farmer which we have to protect animals from but this is a step in the right direction.
    RIP beautiful kitties 🙁

  6. Annica eriksson says:

    well thank god for that, finally justice for these poor cats. I hope this MONSTER will get what he deserves in prison, maybe sexually assaulted that would make my day!!
    KARMA YOU BASTARD!!!

  7. Thank you Sir!

    He should not be released a day sooner regardless of “good behaviour”. He can never be trusted! He should rot in hell!

    I hope all that he “gave” will be given back in prison!

  8. THANK YOU Judge Chatman!
    It gives me such satisfaction knowing that decisions like these (prosecuting animal abusers) are on the rise. These people need serious help. Maybe he can get clean and receive psychotherapy while serving time in prison…and his name needs to be placed on an animal abuse registry.
    I have to agree with Sam … watch your animals. People like this are looking to steal and torture. Sad but true.

  9. Patricia Dumais says:

    This man is very sick and must be treated and evaluated before he is allowed to go free.

    • Greg Masters says:

      No he should never be allowed to go free. No evaluation will help.
      He needs the electric chair because I don’t want my tax dollars going to feed and cloth that monster . No community needs him around .

  11. The maximum penalty SHOULD be he getting sexually assaulted with a burning hot pole, then dismantled piece by disgusting piece, the filthy carcass disposed of in a 30 foot deep pit.

  12. Sharon A. Chatman, Santa Clara County Superior Judge

    Thank you Sharan Chatman for delivering the maximum possible penalty for this animal torturing psychopathic monster,finding this piece of filth guilty of torturing and killing over a dozen innocent cats.

    Robert Farmer, the man who tortured and killed over a dozen cats, will face the maximum penalty for his crimes. The unthinkable cruelty and savagery these cats were subjected to has haunted their owners for the past two years, and it is high time that justice was served.

    Thank goodness that this piece of psychopathic filth 26-year-old Robert Farmer of San Jose, California, has been jailed for 16 years.

    If I had my way I would have tortured this piece of filth to death the same as this monster committed against his innocent and helpless victims endured.

    I pray the inmates will finish this psychopathic animal torturing monster off making sure this monster dies in agony.

  13. The whole world thanks You for such a verdict is justice! Sincerely, Alex. Moscow. Russia.
