Every word I want to use to describe this dirtbag will be replaced by asterisks. A shame nobody gave him the same treatment he did to the moggies.
He was unlucky. The CPS took the decision to charge him with Criminal Damage (maximum sentence ten years) though to get him to Crown Court they must have assessed the damage to exceed £5,000. Had he been charged with animal cruelty the maximum he could have received is six months.
that'd be what, three times what he'd get for killing a human?

A thoroughly nasty piece of work but we need to keep things in proportion.
I can't think of anything to say about this sorry excuse for a human being.

Five years is not long enough.
I cannot imagine anybody who deliberately killed a human to receive only 20 months, jno.
NJ I was referring to Canary's suggestion of a 50-year sentence. (Not that I'm wholly unsympathetic, despite not being a cat person myself.)
Sick excuse for a human being. The punishment for animal cruelty needs to be increased.
I can feel the owners anguish.
5 years *might* be enough if he had to serve it all.
NJ :"He was unlucky. The CPS took the decision to charge him with Criminal Damage (maximum sentence ten years) though to get him to Crown Court they must have assessed the damage to exceed £5,000. Had he been charged with animal cruelty the maximum he could have received is six months."

Just asking, NJ, so was the "Criminal Damage" the damage to the cats ?
Where did you get your information NJ?
Nine killings times six months is five and a half years, 16 cat stabbings/cruelty, times six months is 8 years.... or would the Law not be applied thus?

Regardless, I hope psychiatric assessment was conducted, this smacks of a mentally ill person.
From the link, "The 54-year-old had denied 16 counts of criminal damage and possession of a knife but was found guilty in June."

And this "thrillseeker" got less than 4 years for killing 2 people (including her own daughter) and seriously injuring 5.

I fervently hope that there are several very angry animal lovers waiting until he is amongst them in jail.
I'd love to punch his ugly face, hard !!!

Sorry, jno. That’s the second time today you’ve caught my lack of concentration!

No it would not be applied that way, sevenOP.

Although there are plans to change it, Animal Cruelty is a “summary” offence. This means it can only be dealt with in the Magistrates’ Court. Magistrates’ sentencing powers for summary offences are limited to six months. If they sentence more than one offence at the same time, they must order any sentences to be served concurrently (thus effectively limiting their powers for the offence – no matter how many counts – to six months).

Concurrent sentencing also applies in such circumstances in the Crown Court though of course their overall sentencing powers are greater. Criminal Damage (where the damage is valued at over £5,000) is an “Either Way” offence (meaning it can be heard in either court). If the matter is dealt with in the Magistrates’ Court the maximum sentence would be twelve months (this is their limit when sentencing two or more Either Way offences). But if it is heard in the Crown Court the maximum is ten years.
Finn's Law is a step in the right direction.

I know that Cats are not universally loved or liked, but intentionally hurting/killing one is a cruel crime. The Cat's family/servants are going to suffer from the aftermath of such a crime.

// I fervently hope that there are several very angry animal lovers waiting until he is amongst them in jail.//

yeah and as they pull his finger nails out, blind him or stab ( oops sozza shiv), scream I like pussy !

like you know they dont get any in duh slammer
" such as pets like sslamanders, puppies and bears are against the rules in Her Majesty's corrective and rehab facilities"
what happened to the fella who was poisoning them with antifreeze?
-- answer removed --
The law on animal cruelty wants strengthening greatly. Sentences for such acts want increasing.

However, part of the blame must go to the owners for not looking after their pets properly. OK you can't anticipate a thug like this guy, but a dog or a passing car could cause as much damage. Cat proof your garden or don't have cats!
