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.
Here is one segment of the cat attack video.
