A former Kansas University international student convicted of two counts of animal cruelty has paid restitution to those who investigated his cases, Douglas County District Court records said.
Cem Basoflas, 21, pleaded guilty in April to severely injuring a cat and torturing and killing a dog. He was sentenced to 30 days in jail and is being deported to his home country of Turkey.
A check for $6,217.10 was received by the court on Friday. A court clerk representative said the Lawrence Humane Society and a Lawrence veterinarian would receive their restitution in 21 days, once the check clears.
District Judge Robert Fairchild ordered Basoflas to pay $1,400 to the Humane Society for investigative fees and $3,473 to veterinarian James Kraft for services he performed. The rest of the money is for court costs and fees.
