BASTROP, LA (Ben Caxton) — A Bastrop dog slashing caught on video has two southeast Arkansas men facing ten years in prison. 24-year-olds Steven Sadler and Boots Stanley of Hamburg pled guilty in a Bastrop, Lousiana court Thursday to charges of aggravated cruelty to animals. The two were arrested after a police officer saw a video posted on social media of what appeared to be someone slashing a dog’s throat while another videotaped the gruesome scene. Sadler subsequently was identified as the person who cut the dog’s throat. Stanley was identified as the person who videoed it. The crime was said to have occurred in Bastrop. Sentencing is set for June 14 and both men could face a fine of up to $25,000 and up to ten years behind bars.
