MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - An Auburn man who admitted organizing high-stakes dog fights that attracted participants from several states is scheduled for sentencing next week.

Donnie Anderson is set to appear before U.S. District Judge Keith Watkins on Friday in Montgomery.

Anderson pleaded guilty in April to one count of conspiracy, four counts of sponsoring dog fights, one count of possessing a fighting dog, and one count of operating an illegal gambling business.

Eight others who pleaded guilty in the case are also scheduled for sentencing on different days next week. Most pleaded guilty to conspiracy or possessing fighting dogs.

The nine were charged after investigators conducted raids in Alabama, Mississippi and Georgia and seized about 400 dogs.
