Eduardo Jose Ribaya and Calvin Brown were among those arrested on June 13, 1996, when officers raided a 10-acre ranch near the Altamont Pass. 39 abused pit bulls living in squalid conditions were seized, along with 5 others from an Oakland yard. Most of the dogs had to be euthanized due to their physical conditions and/or temperaments.
Oakland residents Ribaya and Brown pleaded nolo contendere to felony animal cruelty charges on February 4, 1997 in Alameda County Superior Court. Ribaya was sentenced to 16 months in prison and three years' parole, but had been in custody long enough to avoid being transported to state prison for the remainder of his sentence. Brown was sentenced to three years' probation and a $200.00 restitution fine.
