Teague was sentenced to three years in jail! In the video, you can see Teague wait patiently as the cat comes closer. The poor unsuspecting cat screamed in agony as the boiling water burned his body.

 

The cat, Driver, was found a few days later and has recovered thanks to the kind people at Felines & Canines in Chicago.
