MOORHEAD, Minn. (AP) — A Rapid City, South Dakota, man has been sentenced to two months in jail for torturing and killing three cats in January when he lived in Moorhead, Minnesota.

Twenty-four-year-old Jalan Greer this week entered an Alford plea, meaning he didn’t admit guilt but acknowledged that a jury would likely convict him. The court treats it like a guilty plea.

Greer will be on two years of supervised probation following his jail time, during which he can’t possess animals.
