Trenton Dakota Jackson is charged with Cruelty to Animals, stemming from a hazing incident at Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity last month.
Jackson entered an Alford Plea, which means he does not admit guilt, but concedes there is enough evidence for a jury to convict him.
Jackson got 30 days in jail, probated to 12 months, during which he must perform ten hours of community service each month at the Humane Society.
Western Kentucky University suspended Alpha Gamma Rho for three years because of the incident.
