MIAMI -- (WPTV/AP) -- A Florida man who pleaded guilty to stomping and choking a Yorkshire Terrier and leaving the dog to die outside a supermarket has been sentenced.
The Miami Herald reports 41-year-old Sigman Hernandez agreed Wednesday to spend 270 days in jail for the 2017 death of the dog, and will need to complete two years of house arrest followed by a year of probation, and he must repay the veterinarian who treated the dog.
The dog died two days after the attack that left her with at least seven broken ribs. The agreement says Hernandez can no longer have pets.
Hernandez told investigators he became upset when the dog vomited in his car.
