HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) - A Butler County teenager who pled guilty in September for beating a baby alpaca to death was sentenced to 20 months in prison on Thursday.

Nicholas Reynolds, 17, pled guilty to breaking and entering, tampering with evidence, vandalism, grand theft, and cruelty to animals in September. He faced a possible 8 years in prison for his crimes.

After his prison sentence, Reynolds will serve 4-6 months at a correctional facility where he will be undergoing substance abuse treatment for alcohol. After that, Reynolds will be placed under supervision for 4 years where he will do a variety of community service, 100 hours of which will be in an animal shelter.

Reynolds is one of three people who were allegedly involved in the incident, which happened at a Madison Township farm in February. Marcus Miller, 18, is facing similar charges to Reynolds. A third person, Stacie Mullins, 23, is facing complicity charges for allegedly driving the teens to the farm.

The alpaca, named "Masterpiece" was valued at $8,000. His owner does not believe that his sentence his strong enough.

If Reynolds violates his probation after he's out of jail, the judge in the case will hold another hearing where he could face up to 8 years in prison.
