MINEOLA, N.Y. — A Long Island man arrested after a fire killed 13 pit bulls has pleaded guilty to animal fighting charges.

Prosecutors say 53-year-old Anthony Reddick pleaded guilty on Monday to two felony counts connected to breeding and training dogs for fighting.

Reddick was a tenant in the Freeport home where investigators discovered dogs and dogfighting apparatus following the one-car garage fire in February. Three other pit bulls were found alive.

Newsday says the judge planned to sentence Reddick to one to three years in prison and ban him from owning pets for 15 years. Reddick’s attorney declined to comment.

Reddick is to be sentenced on Sept. 22.
