PAPILLION, Neb. (AP) - A Papillion man found guilty of shooting his family’s two dogs with a BB gun, killing one, has been sentenced to 30 days in jail.

The Omaha World-Herald (https://bit.ly/1ZjIg14 ) reports that Barry L. Richey was sentenced Thursday. He pleaded no contest in July to two counts of cruel mistreatment of an animal.

Prosecutors say Papillion police responded to a disturbance at Richey’s home on April 20. Police say Richey’s wife told officers that when she took her Yorkshire terriers to the veterinarian, she learned they had been shot several times. One dog later died.

Richey will only spend 20 days in jail due to time already served.
