BINGHAMTON (WBNG) -- A Binghamton man pleaded guilty to weapons and animal cruelty charges in Broome County Court Thursday.
21-year-old Kyle D. Corbin pleaded guilty to criminal possession of a weapon in the third degree and cruelty to animals. Both are felonies.
The charges were related to a May 4, 2020 incident where a pitbull was killed.
Of the charges, Broome County District Attorney Michael A. Korchak said:
“According to his guilty plea, Kyle D. Corbin did intentionally kill an adult female Pitbull by repeatedly punching, kicking, and stomping the dog. When located by police, Corbin possessed black metal knuckles, all contrary to the provisions of the statute.”
Corbin was arrested by Binghamton Police on May 7 and indicted by a grand jury in August.
The District Attorney's Office says Corbin faces one to three years in prison and will be subject to the Broome County Animal Abuse Registry.
His sentencing is scheduled for Dec. 22.
