A Flomaton man who pleaded guilty to dogfighting and animal cruelty charges is headed back to prison.
Dale Carnley was sentenced Thursday to 15 years. Carnley fought his dog, Batman, against another dog in Santa Rosa County, Florida in March of last year. The next day, he showed off the dog's wounds while trying to sell it to undercover police officers.
A total of six dogs were seized from Carnley's property along with dogfighting paraphernalia.
Carnley's wife, Elizabeth, has also been indicted on dogfighting and animal cruelty charges. She is awaiting trial.
