Magistrate Court Sentences Kurt Zouma for Kicking His Cat | SEE DETAILS
The Thames Magistrates Court has taken a judgement on West Ham United's defender, Kurt Zouma following the cat kicking incident.
The French defender pleaded guilty two weeks ago in front of the judge after he was brought before the judge. Zouma was sentenced to 180 hours of community service and also has been banned from keeping a cat for the next five years.
The District Judge, Susan Holdham, said Zouma and his brother failed to give the cat what was expected of them which is to take care of them.
Both of you took part in this disgraceful and reprehensible act with this pet cat. The cat looked up to you to care for its needs. On that date in February you did not provide for its needs.You must be aware that others look up to you and many young people aspire to emulate you.
Zouma will also pay £9,000 as a fine while his brother Yoan who posted the video on Snapchat has been sentenced to 140 hours of community service.
