The Indiana University student accused of torturing cats has been suspended by the university.
IU spokesman Mark Land said Thursday that student Christopher Gugliuzza has been notified of his summary suspension based on information gathered by Bloomington police and the office of Dean of Students Pete Goldsmith.
Gugliuzza’s suspension comes during the final week of classes for the fall semester and he will not be allowed to finish the term, Land said. He will be allowed to contest his suspension if he chooses.
Gugliuzza faces two felony charges filed by the Monroe County Prosecutor’s Office, accusing the IU student of torturing a 3-month-old cat named Lennox and killing a cat, named Misty, about two months ago. If convicted, each charge can carry a sentence of 6 months to 3 years and up to $10,000 in fines.
