California judge weighs sentencing psycho cat killer as a sex offender

This guy is just creepy. So creepy in fact that a judge said she wants to hear from a psychologist before deciding whether a San Jose man who awaits sentencing for killing 21 cats should one day register as a sex offender for also having sexually abused them.
