Piedmont man receives 20-year sentence for dog fighting, other charges

Reported by: Associated Press
Wednesday, June 18, 2014 7:52 AM EDT

A Piedmont man convicted of running a dog fighting operation has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Thirty-five-year-old Timothy Paul Stewart pleaded guilty earlier this year to possession of dogs for dog fighting, conspiracy to distribute crack cocaine and felon in possession of a firearm. He was sentenced Monday in U.S. District Court in Martinsburg.

U.S. District Judge Gina Groh also sentenced Stewart's girlfriend, 33-year-old Shannon Marie Broadwater of Piedmont, to three years in prison for her role in the sale of crack cocaine.

U.S. Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld II said Wednesday that agents serving a drug trafficking indictment saw dogs, dog pelts, cages and training equipment for dogs in the basement of Stewart's home in October 2013.
