Bloomington — An Arrowsmith man charged with torturing farm animals pleaded guilty Friday to home invasion, burglary and theft charges, but unrelated sexual assault allegations remain pending.
Quentin Getty, 22, faces 54 years in prison when he is sentenced Oct. 25 in McLean County Circuit Court.
Judge Robert Freitag told Getty the sentences in the three cases, in connection with incidents that occurred between December and March, must be consecutive because he was on probation in a 2010 case involving the torture of a cow when the latest offenses took place.
Getty admitted to an October home invasion where a man was injured; a December theft of a woman’s diamond ring valued at more than $500; and a March burglary that also involved the slaughter of two pigs. Animal torture charges were dismissed as part of the plea agreement.
Also dropped were charges in a 2012 drug case and residential burglary charges in the December theft case.
Getty’s plea does not include a March 2013 aggravated criminal sexual abuse and child pornography case. An Oct. 25 hearing is set in that case.
