A man who authorities say sometimes refereed fights involving former NFL star Michael Vick's dogfighting operation has been sentenced in Ohio to 13 and one-half years in prison.

Authorities say Terry Kendrick bred fighting dogs in the basement of his Cincinnati home, and had connections to dogfighting from New York to Florida to Texas.

Judge Robert Ruehlman said photographs and videos showed mauled dogs and blood-stained rings.

Ruehlman sentenced Kendrick to six years for dogfighting and seven and one-half more years for marijuana trafficking. Kendrick apologized in court yesterday.

Vick is a former Atlanta Falcons quarterback serving a 23-month prison sentence after pleading guilty to federal charges. He still faces state dogfighting charges in Virginia.
