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.

Defendant/Suspect: Todd Darren McNair
Case Updates: 1 update(s) available
Todd McNair, a Houston Oilers running back, was arrested and charged with 81 offenses involving the mistreatment of 22 pit bulls being trained on his property for dogfights, the police said.
Seventeen dogs were found tied to trees with chains, all had scars and many appeared malnourished, Lieut. Scott Goess of the East Greenwich police said. He described the condition of the dogs as "appalling."
The case will be presented to the Gloucester County grand jury, Lieutenant Goess said.
He was charged with 17 counts each of violating state animal welfare statutes, including failing to provide shelter for five puppies and keeping 17 unlicensed adult pit bulls. He also was criminally charged with having live animals for the purpose of fighting.
The 30-year-old football player reportedly has a history of run-ins with the police over his pit bulls.
|The grand jury failed to indict Todd McNair on dog-fighting charges, and the case was remanded to the lower court on July 2, 1996. On October 10, 1996, McNair was convicted of 22 misdemeanor counts of failure to provide proper care for his dogs. He paid fines and restitution totaling $16,226.50.|
