(CINCINNATI) -- The leader of a dogfighting ring was sentenced on Monday.
Terry Kendrick, 47, of College Hill, will spend the next 13.5 years behind bars.
Prosecutors consider Kendrick one of the biggest players nationally in the dogfighting business.
The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office raided a warehouse in Dayton in March of 2007 and arrested 19 people, including Kendrick, on drug charges and dogfighting.
As many as 70 dogs were pulled from the warehouse.
Kendrick was indicted on 18 counts of dogfighting and trafficking marijuana.
Kendrick's lawyers argued for a shorter sentence, saying Kendrick is a father, grandfather and active member of the community, working with young men in amateur boxing, and is involved in his church.
Prosecutors argue that Kendrick is known as the "dog-fighting kingpin" of the Midwest and should receive a significant sentence.
