Former UIC gymnast scalds puppy with boiling water

A former UIC gymnast faces prison time for scalding his puppy with boiling hot water. kylevoissem

A Cook County judge found Kyle Voissem guilty of animal cruelty Tuesday.

He faces up to three years in prison when he is sentenced in May.

Prosecutors say he poured boiling water on his dog, because it urinated on the floor.

His dog suffered third degree burns on its neck and second degree burns over half of its body.

The dog survived and is now living with another family.

Voissem was forced to leave the UIC gymnastics team after his arrest.

    This kid should have boiling pee poured all over him during his 3 year stint in jail, there is absolutely no reason to treat a defenseless dog like that.

        Chicago banned guns for years to try and keep them away from the criminals, but did it stop the criminals?

        No, because they can walk right outside Chicago and buy a gun. I don't know how no one with this argument ever understands that simple fact…

    I hope he is still in jail while awaiting sentencing. Three years, that's all? Hope they just don't do a little slap on the hand. Reporters should follow up on this story to make sure he gets punishment for this horrible crime. He is a BIG BULLY picking on a puppy.

    He looks like a Jeffrey Dahmer or something everyone keep your eyes on him. Goofy is a cowed and I hope someone show him how much a #%@$ he is when he go to jail. Oops I drop my soap.

    Stop overreacting people! He probably was not the right person to take care of the dog (probably lost his temper with the dog because of what it did), but to kill and scald him? A couple of years in jail is a punishment enough.

    Ok Anon…next time you make a mistake at work or school, I'll be sure to tell whoever is in charge to feel free to scald you since it's no big deal.

    This guy should never ever be able to have kids, and he must be forced to pay fines to animal shelters like Michael Vick did.
