San Jose serial cat killer gets 16-year sentence

This is an undated image of a cat that was allegedly killed by San Jose man Robert Farmer

Chatman rejected the prosecution's request that Robert Farmer be required to register as a sex offender on the grounds the evidence was not strong enough to conclude he had sexually abused one of the slain animals after it died. In an interview past year, Deputy District Attorney Alexandra Ellis said surveillance video helped detectives track the suspect down, "Our hearts go out to the families that were affected by this crime, and we look forward to Mr. Farmer being held accountable for these heinous acts", she said. One time she said Farmer hit her grandson in the face, unprovoked, and on another occasion he shot the same boy in the leg with a pellet gun. The doctor also considered him a possible danger to the community, with a prognosis for recovery that was "poor, with potential escalation to higher life forms in the future".

The owners of the dead cats - police say he killed up to 16 of them, though only four bodies were recovered - say that Farmer terrorized their Cambrian Park neighborhood in south San Jose for months, causing pet owners to keep outdoor cats inside as animal after animal disappeared.

Numberous blood stains were also discovered in Farmer's auto, along with a dead cat. "They have every reason to feel anger at me because I stole a member of their family", said attorney Wesley Schroeder, on Farmer's behalf. "We are the voice of the voiceless, we are the voice for our animals, and we will not tolerate animal abuse anymore", said San Jose resident Miriam Petrova. Farmer will have mandatory supervision for three years upon his release.

"He likes to hurt living things", Chatman said.

Farmer was also banned from owning or caring for a pet for 10 years after his release, and was given a restriction order keeping him away from Cambrian Park. Farmer listened with his back turned to the crowd.

"It's still painful to come home knowing GoGo isn't waiting for us", Petrova said.

"GoGo never hurt anybody", she added, before addressing Farmer directly: "And for you, Robert Farmer-what have you done to GoGo?" She imposed the maximum sentence, which Farmer will serve in a county jail.
