NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A man convicted of kicking a dog like a football and killing it has been sentenced to 30 days in jail.
Chad Crawford had faced up to a year in jail after being found of aggravated animal cruelty in October.
WTVF-TV in Nashville reports that Crawford must also get a psychological evaluation and report to jail on Dec. 14.
He denied kicking the dog in an incident that caused community outrage more than three years ago. He avoided a more serious felony charge of intentionally killing an animal.
The man accused of holding the Yorkshire Terrier for the kick is also facing a trial.
