Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The two teens accused of drowning kittens discovered their punishment in juvenile court on Tuesday.
Each teen made a plea deal, admitting to one count of felony animal cruelty in order to have other charges against them dropped.
The teens, who have been in custody for 20 days, will remain in custody for 10 more days. Upon their release, they will remain under house arrest until school starts, and remain under parole supervision for the next 12 months.
The teens will each be monitored by GPS and be subject to random drug tests. They will be required to complete 200 hours of community service each, part of which will include working with Clark County Animal Control. They also must write letters of apology to an animal welfare organization.
The teens will undergo counseling and are not allowed access to weapons or driver's licenses. They are not permitted to use social media, cell phones or computers during their one-year probation.
The two teens are not allowed contact with each other or any witnesses in the case.
The judge ordered the teens to be monitored until they are 21 years old.
