BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The man accused of horrifically attacking his roommate’s cat in a Boca Raton apartment has agreed to a enter a pre-trial intervention program.
Jordan Scott Bean was captured on surveillance video wrapping the cat named “Chompers” in a blanket and assaulting the animal. It happened in January in an apartment overlooking Mizner Park. He was charged with Felony Cruelty to Animals.
In a document obtained by BocaNewsNow.com, Bean, 25, has agreed with prosecutors to accept and perform 200 hours of community service, undergo a psychological evaluation, make a $500 payment to the cat’s owner — his former roommate — and he may not own, trade, or sell any animal for the duration of this “pre-trial” intervention. If he successfully completes the program, the charges will be dismissed. If he fails, he’ll likely end up in trial.
The cat recovered from its injuries.
