FOND DU LAC, WI (WTAQ) - A Fond du Lac County man has been sentenced to six years in prison for tying a teenager to a porch rafter, and having his pit bull attack the youngster.
59-year-old Richard Lisko was also told to spend six years under extended supervision, for convictions of false imprisonment and reckless injury.
The prison time was about half of what prosecutors recommended.
Authorities said Lisko was upset at 18-year-old Joel Kennedy of New Berlin for stealing morphine and gold coins from his house in Campbellsport.
So Lisko tied up the teenager, and his pit bull “Bubba” attack Kennedy on and off for over an hour. The dog bit the teen’s face.
The animal has been at a humane shelter since Lisko was arrested last fall.
