Md. Man Gets 2 Years for Cockfighting

Posted: Updated:

ODENTON, Md. (AP)- An Anne Arundel County judge has sentenced an Odenton man to two years in prison for his role in a cockfighting operation.
    
Thirty-six-year-old Ethan Harmon pleaded guilty to five cockfighting-related charges Monday and was sentenced to two years with credit for time served. He was also ordered to pay more than $1,100 in restitution to county animal control.
    
State's Attorney's Office spokeswoman Heather Epkins says Harmon was also sentenced to six months for violating probation by failing to register as a sex offender.
    
Police seized about 270 birds from Harmon's home in June. Dozens were maimed in preparation for fighting and those that survived were euthanized. Charging documents state that Harmon told police he sent some birds to the Philippines to fight.
