ALEX PHELPS - "CRAIG'S LIST CAT KILLER" - WILL SOON BE ELIGIBLE FOR PAROLE -BUT WE MUST VOICE THAT WE WANT HIM TO SERVE HIS FULL SENTENCE !
Even though he was just sentenced in January, under Kentucky law, he is already eligible for parole because of the jail time he served before sentencing.Phelps is the Bullitt County man who tortured to death at least eight cats by duct-taping their feet together and cutting them open. He obtained the cats from "free to good home" ads. During the sentencing hearing in Bullitt Circuit Court, Phelps testified that he had obtained at least two dozen cats, and "released them into the wild." It is unclear what Phelps meant by his statement. When first interviewed by police, Phelps stated that cats had certain magical powers. We do not know whether Phelps turned the other cats loose or "released them" by killing them. He also told police he was conducting "medical experiments."
The Bullitt Circuit Court accepted a plea agreement, and sentenced Phelps to five years in prison. The sentencing order makes clear that the court had grave concerns about Phelps. The order finds that there is a "substantial risk the Defendant would commit another crime during any period of parole or conditional discharge," "the Defendant is in the need of correctional treatment that may be provided most effectively by the Defendant's commitment to a correctional institute", and parole or conditional release "would unduly depreciate the seriousness of the Defendant's crime", due to its "deliberate nature."
Please object to parole by signing this petition now to the Kentucky Parole Board .
