He was ordered to pay court costs and sentenced to 120 hours of community service. He was also banned from keeping pets for 8 years. The judge reprimanded White stating “By virtue of your treatment of this small, unfortunate rodent you've destroyed your good character and acquired a criminal conviction.” Last year, police arrested a Florida man, Alan McCarty for allegedly killing an opossum.
