Jury recommends 10 years in dogfighting case

By Washington Post editors

The Richmond Times Dispatch reports that a Richmond jury has recommended a 10 year sentence for a 32-year-old Richmond man convicted of running a dog fighting ring out of his home. It is believed to be the longest sentence for dog fighting in Virginia history. Times Dispatch reporter Joe Macenka writes in his story that Richmond prosecutors and animal-control authorities said they are unaware of any dogfighting sentences in Virginia exceeding four years.
