RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) – Guilty verdicts today for a man accused of running a dog fighting operation out of his south Richmond home.

32-year-old Richard Robinson was convicted on four counts, including felony animal fighting.

The jury sentenced Robinson to ten years.

In June, animal control officers seized 12 pitbulls from his property.

Ten of them were so badly injured, they had to be put down.
