ELK RIVER, Minn. (AP) - A Princeton man who admitted to torturing and killing his girlfriend’s dog has been sentenced to a year in jail but could go free sooner.

Twenty-four-year-old Anthony Sather pleaded guilty to felony animal cruelty and other charges in June. He admitted beating, kicking and shooting his then-girlfriend’s husky mix named Draco back in January - and recording it on video.

Sherburne County District Judge Thomas Hayes on Monday gave Sather a suspended sentence of two years in prison, and imposed a sentence of one year in jail with credit for 225 days already served, and 10 years of probation.

Conditions include no contact with his ex-girlfriend, chemical and psychological evaluations, he can’t own pets or farm animals or live anywhere with them, and can’t possess firearms or video recording equipment.
