The case against a 19-year-old Whitestown man accused of taping up a kitten's paws over the summer moved forward today. Joseph Sullivan's defense attorney represented him in Oriskany Village Court today. Alongside him, the Onondaga County prosecutor assigned to the case. Sullivan's father is a local Whitestown justice. The case will move forward with a discovery hearing. Sullivan was charged with animal cruelty after police say he was found at a town park with two kittens, one in a box, the other with its paws taped together. And, there was a lighter on the floor. Outside the court today were many animal activists.
"It hurts my soul, it hurts myheart and I just hope to god that he is just convicted and he gets what he deserves," said Betty Worth. Before the incident being discussed in court, another kitten was rescued from a swamp in that park with its paws also bound. Today, the Syracuse-based prosecutor says both incidents will be discussed at the discovery meeting, which suggests they could be connected. Sullivan's case will resume in court on December 18th.
