MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY -- Jayce Bryant, the man who tortured a puppy, was sentenced to jail on Wednesday.
Bryant plead guilty earlier this year to torture of a dog with serious injury.
He was sentenced to 2.5 years behind bars and must pay more than $1,300 in restitution to the McCracken County Humane Society.
Bryant's lawyer asked for probation, but the judge denied it.
The judge also read a statement made by Russel Jones, the veterinarian who first helped with the puppy.
Jones said the muzzle had to have been wrapped around his snout for at least 48 hours.
