A couple of guys from Columbus were charged with conspiring to participate in a dog-fighting ring in central Ohio. Their names are Dwayne T. Robinson, Jr., 33, and Henry Gerard James Hill, Jr., 21.

The two were part of a big bust by police last year. Inside five houses they raided, police found more than 40 dogs and cages, treadmills, chains and other very incriminating items. The floors and walls were stained with dog blood which was a dead giveaway for agents.

As if those weren’t nails in the coffin, both defendants has trophies in their possession commemorating dog-fight wins. AND, both Hill and Robinson sold male fighting dogs to undercover cops on two separate occasions.

These two could get up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.
