#JusticeForSkittles: Sentencing Hearing Today For Disgraced Ex-Veterinarian Bruce P. Langlois

UPDATE 3:15pm-Langlois was sentenced to 30 days in jail, along with a $1,500 fine. He must serve 10 days immediately, and serve the remaining 20 days after the end of his 18 months probation period. In addition, he was ordered to serve 50 hours of community service, register as a sex offender and have no contact with any animals except his own.

Defrocked veterinarian (and two-time convicted sex offender) Bruce P. Langlois sentencing is scheduled for 1:30pm this afternoon in the Michigan courtroom of Judge Gerald M. Prill. 

Originally set for May 13, 2019, the 52nd Circuit Court session was delayed due to “scheduling conflicts”. 

Facing a one-day jury trial on March 5, 2019, Langlois instead agreed to a deal, pleading guilty to one count of Unauthorized Practice of Veterinary Medicine. 

In return, the Michigan Attorney General's Office agreed to drop the two additional unauthorized practice charges and not seek a sentencing enhancement against Langlois as a habitual offender. 

(Langlois has fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct convictions in 1988 and 1995 in Kent County and must remain on the Michigan Sex Offender Registry for his lifetime.). 

Langlois admitted during the plea hearing that he'd “neutered a cat named Skittles” on December 16, 2016, even though his Michigan license to practice veterinary medicine was revoked in 2015. 

There is no mandatory minimum in this case, and the maximum sentence is 4 years in a Michigan prison and a fine of up to $2,000.
