LOCKPORT - A Wheatfield man, who broke the pelvis of his grandmother's dog by slamming it to the floor after the dog killed a kitten, pleaded guilty to a felony today and was promised a one-year jail sentence by State Supreme Court Justice Richard C. Kloch Sr.

Jason E. Evrard, 27, of Nash Road, admitted to a charge of aggravated cruelty to animals.

Kloch will make the sentence official Nov. 8.

Evrard is being held without bail in Niagara County Jail, and the time since his arrest counts toward his sentence.

A nearly 8-year-old Lhasa Apso was hurt May 10 after the dog killed a 2-week-old kitten that belonged to Evrard's house cat, the SPCA of Niagara reported at the time. The dog got into the same room as the cats because a door had inadvertently been left open.
