Campbellsport Man Sentenced For Dog Attack


Saying he agreed with the author of a pre-sentence investigation that a vicious dog attack on a teen at a Campbellsport farm was inhumane, Fond du Lac County Judge Gary Sharpe sentenced the dog’s owner to prison and extended supervision. During Thursday’s sentencing the judge sentenced 59-year-old Richard Lisko to 6 years in prison and 6 years of extended supervision on 1st degree reckless injury and false imprisonment charges. Lisko believed 18-year-old Joel Kennedy, Jr. stole pills from him last August when he had the pit bull attack the teen. Judge Sharpe said Lisko took the law into his own hands, choosing to convict and punish. The victim’s statement was read during the sentencing. District Attorney Eric Toney says Joel Kennedy, Jr. asked the judge to sentence Lisko to more time than the judge gave him. Toney says his office would have liked to see Lisko get more time, but what he was sentenced to is no small amount of time. He says they are happy to see the case resolved and hope that everyone involved can now beging to heal. Lisko’s family members told the judge he was not the monster he had been portrayed to be and that prescription medication played a role in the incident.

So he gets 6 years and the drunk driver that killed someone gets 90 days? Can someone please explain this to me?

I wish someone would. The drunk driver took a life. He has to be accountable for that. 90 days is a slap on the wrist.

Its easy to explain.
The judges use the 'Magic 8 Ball' when the sentence someone. It doesn't require any thought and its easier than doing their job.

The only explaination I can give is that this situation was completely intentional and more thought out. It was more "cold blooded"
