A man from suburban South Holland was sentenced to three years in prison for his role in a dog- fighting operation, breeding or training dogs for fighting, and animal cruelty.

Kevin Taylor, 33, was convicted last month of owning or training dogs for fighting, and of animal cruelty. Taylor's home was raided in 2007 and authorities recovered dozens of dogs. Most of the animals were found in an unventilated and ark barn without food or water.

The raid prompted Sheriff Tom Dart to create a Cook County Animal Crimes Unit.
