TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A New Mexico man convicted in New Jersey for his role in a multistate dog fighting operation has been sentenced to four years in prison.

Robert Arellano will also have to serve three years of supervised release under the sentence imposed Thursday.

The 65-year-old Albuquerque man was among four people convicted on multiple counts last year. Arellano also pleaded guilty to three felony counts in a related federal case in New Mexico that was consolidated with his New Jersey case for sentencing purposes.

Authorities say Arellano kept dogs at his home for dog fighting purposes from 2012-2016, bringing in dogs from New Jersey and Indiana so they could be used to fight. He also had dog fighting videos, records, how-to materials and photographs.
