Additional six months given to Joel Kennedy in dog attack

FOND DU LAC, WI (WTAQ) - A man who allowed a dog to attack his son has been sentenced to an extra six months behind bars.

Joel Kennedy and Richard Lisko tied up Kennedy's son, after Lisko claimed the son had robbed him. Lisko then allegedly ordered his dog to attack the teen, while Kennedy stood and watched.

The 18-year-old son suffered several bite wounds, cuts and scratches.

A jury convicted Kennedy of several counts, including false imprisonment and reckless injury. He was sentenced to 6 months in jail and three years probation in February, but sentencing was withheld on three counts until after Lisko's trial - at which Kennedy testified.

At a hearing on Tuesday, Judge Peter Grimm added another six months in jail and six years probation, according to online court records.

Lisko will be sentenced Thursday.
