A Soldiers Grove man is admitting to paying someone in Indonesia to torture a monkey on video.
U.S. prosecutors say 40-year-old Kenneth Herrera pleaded guilty to federal charges related to the footage on Friday. Herrera has admitted to paying a man 100 dollars to record himself harming a young macaque. He also instructed the man on the ways he wanted the torture done, according to officials. Herrera could face up to seven years in prison when he is sentenced in December.
