Richael Michels, known under the fursona of Kitteh, is a furry from Fort Collins, Colorado. In 2009, she plead guilty and was convicted of having committed misdemeanor sexual assault and unlawful sexual conduct by having sex with a 16-year-old boy. She was also put on seven other charges, including felony sexual assault, but these charges were dropped after her conviction.
She was arrested in July 2009, although prosecutors have not said what led to her arrest. Michaels, who attended furmeets normally dressed in cat ears, admitted that she had sex with an unnamed 16-year-old, but claimed in her defence that she suffered from Bi-polar disorder, for which she is now receiving treatment.
Michels was sentenced to be put on the sex offenders register for at least 10 years, is barred from seeing anyone under 18 except her own two children, spend 120 days on electronic home monitoring and perform 200 hours of useful public service over the next four years.
