FOND DU LAC - A Campbellsport man who ordered a dog to viciously attack a teen he had tied to a porch rafter has been sentenced to six years in prison.
Prosecutors say 59-year-old Richard Lisko bound Joey Kennedy's ankles, hung him upside down and ordered his Argentine Mastiff "Bubba" to bite the teen. Lisko accused the 18-year-old New Berlin man of stealing morphine and gold coins from his home.
Lisko was found guilty in May of false imprisonment and first-degree reckless injury.
Fond du Lac County Assistant District Attorney Dennis Krueger told the judge Kennedy is afraid of Lisko and what he might do when he gets out of prison.
Lisko says he is sorry and embarrassed about what happened.
