A Lincoln man faces up to a year in jail, accused of putting his roommate's cat in a washing machine last month.

A charge of cruel mistreatment of an animal was filed against 22-year-old Richard Andersen.

The Class 1 misdemeanor carries a maximum jail term of one year, a $1,000 fine or both.

His next court appearance is set for Feb. 16.

Police were called to a Lincoln home on Dec. 27 by Andersen's roommate, who said she'd found a video on Andersen's cell phone of
Andersen putting the cat, named Delilah, into the washing machine.
She says Andersen could be heard saying, "It's the spin cycle."

Delilah survived the ordeal.

A Lincoln phone number listed for Andersen is no longer in service.

Case documents list no attorney for him.
