It’s too  harsh to call it ‘murder’ because that word refers to humans, but Harvey Updyke has admitted to the killing of Toomer’s Oaks.

The Alabama fan – who famous called Paul Finebaum’s show to admit his crime – was sentenced to three years in prison after admitting to “Criminal Damage to an Agriculture Facility”, which is a Class C felony in the State of Alabama. The sentencing was part of a plea deal with the D.A.

He will be out after six months, and then under supervised probation for five years.

“As part of the plea deal, Updyke’s probation will require him to abide by a 7 p.m. curfew and he is forbidden to attend any collegiate athletic events and is banned from entering any property owned by Auburn University,” WSFA 12 News remarked in an article. 

Updyke poisoned the Oaks in 2011 after being infuriated by Auburn’s National Championship win. The Oaks themselves will never recover.
