Alabama Man Sentenced To 10 Years In Prison For Dog Fighting

On January 11,Terrance McNeil of Atmore, Alabama plead guilty to 27 counts of felony dog fighting charges.

Today Judge Bradley Byrne handed down McNeil’s sentence for dog fighting –10 years in prison.

McNeil’s troubles started back in June of 2008, when Atmore, Alabama police got a tip that led them to McNeil and his dog fighting “arena”. Once there, police found buckets of water for washing down the Pit Bulls prior to the fight, scales for weighing the dogs to verify fighting weight, fighting dog pedigrees and a gun with two bullets for the losers of the fights that night.

Police also seized two dogs still in crates and then arrested McNeil, Johnathon Stallworth and Patrice Marshall.

Then in September of 2008, police raided McNeil’s home this time in Autagua County, Alabama where they seized 20 dogs and 7 puppies. Police re-arrested McNeil and Marshall. They also arrested McNeil’s twin brother, Terrell, and Shantay Robinson.

All defendants now face 27 counts of felony dog fighting with each count carrying a potential sentence of one to ten years in prison and/or up to $15,000 fine. Stallworth and Marshall have not yet gone to trial.

Bravo Judge Bradley Byrne, Legal professionals from around the country could learn much from you. Your family, friends and legal associates certainly can be proud that they know you. Once again BRAVO for a man that understands what his purpose in the legal system is.

sharonswader, i agree but remember bc of us the ppl that fight for the dogs and a judge that takes it somewhat seriously he didn’t just get a slap on the wrist like so many stories we have seen so that is some progress. i’m in total agreement with u about 10 years for each count but i feel like if it wasn’t for us ppl that r pushing for animal abuse being a felony and having a no kill nation then this guy would be at home now abusing more animals right now.

They deserve more time. Judge Bryne thank you for having the courage to actually convict this animal at least he won’t get away scott free as in other cases. I pray the others end up in your court as well.

It’s refreshing to see SOME kind of closer to acceptable punishment, a yr is a freakin joke for taking lives, human OR animal. Next step, life OR death sentence all around for purposely killing, let’s clear some of this trash from our concern!

yea that trash should have gotten the life sentence, i bet ud see less dog fighting, if they knew theyd get life if they were caught, the judges arent harsh enough on these thugs and punks, if they were real men they would get in the ring themselves and fight it out, but they are fucking pathic lil punk nobody thugs, and i loathe them but as i always say karma is a real bitch and what goes around comes around, and god will punish the punishers, those i believe in. they will get theres. maybe some of these judges needs to actually open there eyes get there fingers outta there ass and really take a look at whats going on in the “REAL WORLD” not just go to harvard back in the day get to be a lawyer then a judge when hes an old fucker, they just dont get it. as i shake my head pfff. my heart goes out to all those dogs that lived and died at the hands of ignorant ppl, esp that make em fight each other

10 yrs its better than nothing but not enough.  Personally I think we should take these pieces of crap, the dredge of society out back and shoot them.  They are a waste of oxygen and the thought of my tax dollars going to feed this pile of shit makes me sick.  Look at him… a real contribution… making money off of the torturing of animals.  I could easily put a bullet in this guys head but that would be to nice.  I think we should put him and the other predators in our society in a pit and beat the shit out of them until they die… save some tax dollars!
