Sean Stanford

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Prosecutors are fighting to keep a man accused of shooting a cat behind bars.

Sean Stanford is facing extreme animal cruelty charges.

A judge initially ordered Stanford be released on his own recognizance, but after Stanford’s court appearance Monday, the District Attorney’s office filed a motion for pretrial detention.

Stanford is still being held at the Bernalillo County jail until a judge decides if he’ll remain locked up until trial.
