Sochocki's despicable act of cruelty was discovered on October 11 when police observed him swerving a vehicle being driven along Route 32 in Willington. When the police approached his car, they witnessed "chunks" of white fur on his shirt. The fur was from a recently purchased rabbit which Sochocki had maimed while driving!
Officers found the severely injured rabbit inside of the car - the innocent animal's hind legs had been severed with a pair of scissors! Tragically, the mutilated rabbit was still alive and suffering when it was discovered - the animal had to be transported to a veterinarian to be humanely euthanized.
Sochocki is facing multiple charges, including:
First-degree wounding/killing of an animal, as well as use of drug paraphernalia, operating a motor vehicle under the influence and failure to drive in the proper lane.
Please sign this petition - Sochocki could be sentenced up to five years in prison. We want the prosecutor to know that a plea deal is not acceptable, and to see this cruel behavior punished to the fullest extent of the law!
