CONVICTED: Was justice served?
more information on voting
When you vote, you are voting on whether or not the punishment fit the crime, NOT on the severity of the case itself. If you feel the sentence was very weak, you would vote 1 star. If you feel the sentence was very strong, you would vote 5 stars.
Please vote honestly and realistically. These ratings will be used a a tool for many future programs, including a "Peoples Choice" of best and worst sentencing, DA and judge "report cards", and more. Try to resist the temptation to vote 1 star on every case, even if you feel that 100 years in prison isnt enough.

In November 2001, a Broward Sheriff's Office deputy spotted two men, Tarrence Cross and Ira Jenkins, fighting their dogs behind an apartment complex in Lauderdale Lakes.
The officer saw five suspects gathered in a parking lot cheering on two dogs that were fighting, and after three onlookers fled, the two dog owners were arrested.
Both animals were less than a year old, and the deputy found serious bites and puncture wounds to their muzzles, jowls and necks.
Both owners were charged with animal-fighting, but only one, Cross, was convicted and served 180 days in jail.
