TonyTaylorSentenced

Tony Taylor, the top informant in the Michael Vick case, was dealt a serious blow when judges sentenced him to two months in prison. Prosecutors wanted to allow him to walk for his role in exposing Michael Vick’s dogfighting ring:

U.S. District Judge Henry E. Hudson disagreed, saying it wouldn’t be right to let Tony Taylor walk after sentencing Vick to 23 months in prison and two other co-defendants to 18 and 21 months. “You were as much an abuser of animals as any other defendant in this case,” Hudson told Taylor on Friday before sentencing him to two months in prison.

Prosecutor Michael Gill had recommended Taylor only serve probation.

Hudson agreed Taylor deserved a break. However, he said the “gross disparity” suggested by Gill was inappropriate for a person who helped develop and run the dogfighting operation and admitted killing two dogs, one by gunshot and one by electrocution.

When the government is trying to prove a point, no one is shown any mercy.
