WHITESTOWN —
After the teenage son of Whitestown Town Justice Daniel Sullivan was accused of tying together a kitten’s legs in July, his defense attorney has sought to have the torture charge dismissed.

Joseph Sullivan, 19, was charged by Whitestown police on July 22 with torturing an animal under state Agriculture and Markets law, an allegation the defense finds inconsistent with the legal definition of the misdemeanor offense.

“I believe that the facts of this case do not warrant this charge, and we have made a motion explaining that to the judge and asking to dismiss the charge right at the beginning of the case,” attorney Ricardo Mauro said.

The next court date is set for Oct. 9 in front of Oriskany Village Court Justice Christopher Clarkin.

A police officer discovered Joseph Sullivan alone with two kittens in the women’s restroom at the Gibson Road park after the park had closed, police Sgt. Mark Sojda said. One of the kittens had its legs wrapped in tape behind its back while the other kitten was still in its crate, and there was a lighter on the floor, Sojda said.

Joseph Sullivan didn’t have a clear explanation for what he was doing with the kittens, Sojda said, but he did say that he taped the kitten’s legs because it was getting out of its box.

The kitten did not appear to be injured after it was cut loose, Sojda said, but Joseph Sullivan was charged after Sojda and police Chief Donald Wolanin

This guy needs help!! God only knows how many animals he has already tortured or killed. I'm sure his parents are aware that he is a nut, but are sweeping it under the rug hoping it goes away. He is one sick person.
Oh man

He should not be getting any "special" treatment. Treat him as you would if he was not a judge's son. The Garramone Boys got away with incredible things because of their father. Don't let the same happen here. All I have to say is...Karma!

I hope these kittens are in the hands of the Humane Society now. This kid is a nut case!! Mr. Mauro should be dis-barred for recommending the charges be dismissed. What in god's name was the jerk doing in the "ladies" room with bound up kittens and a lighter?? Doesn't take a genius to figure out he was up to no good. Remove the sick minded jerks from society once and for all. This makes me sick to my stomach and very angry with the judicial system. Whitesboro is corrupt to say the least when it comes to following the laws for everyone!!

Obviously VERY disturbed person. This cannot be ignored. He needs to be evaluated. He will hurt someone if he doesn't get treatment. His parents must be sick over this, but need to do what's right.

Luckily the cop showed up when he did or both cats would have been set on fire for this kids pleasure. The cat was all taped up and ready to be lit. It's time this kid gets some much needed HELP!!!

His mother is an extremely thoughtful Christian person who will seek the appropriate help for her beloved son.....attacking this family simply because the father is a judge is wrong.
Praise should go to the officer who prevented what could have been a much worse scenario......again the son is getting help so we must all try to do our best to FORGIVE! God Blessed you ALL with the wonderful ability to do so......

19 is old enough to vote...legally emancipated...can join the military...get married...enter contracts...and what's he doing? In a public WOMENS bathroom getting read to torture and kill 2 kittens. It took alot of fore-thought to put his scheme into action. Get carrier...get the tape...remember the lighter...pick a spot where he could be alone and thought no one could hear their cries of pain. This young man is SCARY and it's probably not the first time he's done this. His parents better understand this is a MAJOR REALITY WAKE-UP. Ignore it and he's going to end up killing someone. Oh, and fire that damn lawyer.
