Officials say the man, who had been convicted in Tioga County of brutally killing his aunt’s dog, three years before committing a similar crime in Broome County, was being booked into the Broome County Jail March 29 on another charge when authorities say they found he had meth in his possession. 

District Attorney Michael Korchak’ office says Corbin will be sentenced to one-and-a-half to three years in New York State Prison at the end of January.

Corbin appears in local news reports in October 2020 when he pleaded guilty in Broome County to a felony charge of Aggravated Cruelty to Animals and Criminal Possession of a Weapon for intentionally killing an adult female pit bull on May 4, 2020. 

Police said they found metal knuckles in his possession when he was arrested on May 7, 2020 in the investigation into the death of the pit bill which he admitted repeatedly punching, kicking and stomping. 

Back in April 2017, Corbin was accused of stomping his aunt’s pet Chihuahua to death while he was staying with his relative, then throwing the woman’s pet into a creek.  He pleaded guilty to Aggravated Cruelty to Animals in that case.
