Robbie M. VanBoxlaere, 51, of 133 Exchange St., Apartment 4, who pleaded guilty to aggravated cruelty to an animal, a felony, and failure to provide proper sustenance, a misdemeanor, was additionally barred from owning an animal for five years after his release from Ontario County Jail.
It is a LOT easier to do your time in the local county jail than prison. They should've sent him to prison - based on his criminal history.
VanBoxlaere was further ordered by Ontario County Judge William Kocher to pay $393.50 in restitution.
The Ontario County Humane Society opened up an investigation after receiving word from personnel at Lollypop Farm in Fairport of the cat and its condition.
The black cat named Sam also was suffering from a large tumor in her head, the Humane Society stated in a release.
The investigation showed that the cat was owned by VanBoxlaere. The 51-year-old failed to take the cat to the veterinarian for treatment despite knowing of the cat’s condition, the Humane Society said.
The cat, which was not able to eat and had difficulty breathing, was euthanized, according to the Humane Society.
The New York State Division of Parole, Ontario County sheriff’s deputies, the Geneva Police Department and Lollypop Farm assisted in the investigation.

WHAT DID ROBBIE VANBOXLAERE DO TO BECOME A REGISTERED SEX OFFENDER?
On another post, someone complained that I listed that the animal cruelty suspect was a registered sex offender, saying that wasn't relevant and that "some" sex offenders only got on the list because they "urinated in public". I doubt that. So I went through the extra effort to find out just what Robbie VanBoxlaere did to get himself on the list. Here it is:
"Another arrest expected in child prostitution case"
(Finger Lakes Times - March 6, 2007)
Sheriff's investigators say that at least one other man will be charged in connection with three teenage girls being sold for sex at a Wayne County migrant camp.
Seneca County Sheriff's Investigator John Cleere said more than 50 people have been interviewed since December 2005, when they began investigating an incident that reportedly happened the previous summer. It came to light after one of the victims moved from Wayne County to Seneca, and Child Protective Services began looking into a complaint of sexual abuse.
The girls, under 17 at the time, are in protective custody; two of them had been sold by relatives. Cleere said they'd been given drugs and alcohol.
Many sex crimes cases involve children who have been brought up to not talk to police, Cleere noted, so building rapport and trust takes a long time. It's also sometimes hard for children to explain precisely where criminal acts took place because they don't know where they were or the names of towns; or they're unable to lead investigators to sites, so it's difficult to prove where something happened.
A break in the case came last month when investigators found a witness who could supply more details.
Wayne County Investigator Roger LaClair began working the case with Cleere and Investigator Kipp Goodman last summer and was able to establish locations. On Saturday, LaClair and Cleere arrested Robbie VanBoxlaere, 42, of 11 E. Main St., Clifton Springs.
He is charged with three counts of second-degree promoting prostitution, one count of third-degree promoting prostitution, two counts of endangering the welfare of a child and four counts of first-degree unlawfully dealing with a child.
He is accused of supplying two teenage girls, ages 15 and 16, with alcoholic beverages and marijuana and then selling them for sex with other men in the summer of 2005 in Marion.
VanBoxlaere was arraigned before Marion Town Justice Samuel Bonafede and sent to the Wayne County jail in lieu of $50,000 cash or $100,000 bond.
Goodman said three families are involved.
"This is one of the most complicated (cases) I've ever worked on,” Cleere said. "It runs the gamut of all types of child abuse.”
A third victim has been reluctant to talk, said investigators, who also noted that one of the victims is not a relative.
There are additional matters pending in Family Court alleging abuse and neglect. And in December of 2005, there were three other related arrests at Lot 85, 393 Wagner St.:
Charles McEneany, 22, who was charged with three counts each of third-degree rape and third-degree criminal sexual act, plus single counts of endangering the welfare of a child and second-degree criminal contempt.
He pleaded guilty April 10 to third-degree rape and the contempt charge for engaging in sexual activity in November and December 2005 with a 16-year-old girl, violating an order of protection, which resulted in the contempt charge.
He was sentenced to 1-1/2 to three years in state prison and is housed at Mid-State Correctional Facility in Oneida County, eligible for parole in November.
Edwin A. Teeter, 40, first-degree sexual abuse, second-degree unlawful imprisonment and three counts of endangering the welfare of a child, for allegedly restraining the girl and subjecting her and a 13-year-old friend to sexual contact at his residence.
He pleaded guilty April 11 to endangering the welfare of a child and was sentenced to 45 days in county jail, time served, fined $1,000 and placed on three years probation.
Louise VanBoxlaere, 41, was charged with endangering the welfare of a child, which she pleaded guilty to April 11 for allowing the sexual contact between the 16-year-old and McEneany; she was sentenced to three years probation.
"It's a horrible thing when relatives utilize defenseless victims in such a way,” said Sheriff Leo Connolly. "Domestic and child abuse has always been a priority of the Seneca County Sheriff's Department and this is probably one of the most egregious cases I have seen.
"Every effort has been made by both Seneca and Wayne County officials to make sure that these young girls are safe and sound.”
