Former Richmond deputy headed to jail for dog fighting conviction

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - A former Richmond Sheriff's Deputy is heading to jail.

Today, David Robinson was sentenced in Henrico County Circuit Court to 14 months behind bars following a conviction on 12 charges for dog fighting and animal cruelty.

The judge also ordered Robinson to pay almost $7,000 in fines and restitution.

Robinson was arrested in April 2009 after police seized more than 20 pit bulls from his eastern Henrico property.

Soon after, he was fired from his job at the City Jail.
