(Las Vegas, Associated Press)– A University of California, Berkeley law school student accused in the death and decapitation of an exotic bird at a Las Vegas resort attraction has pleaded guilty to the misdemeanor animal cruelty charge against him.

Eric Cuellar was sentenced to 48 hours community service and ordered to pay $350 in fines and restitution.

A fellow law student is still facing a criminal trial in the incident that occurred at the Flamingo Hotel’s wildlife habitat in October of last year.
