LITTLE ROCK, AR - C.C. Baird, 59, and his wife Patsy Baird, also 59, both of Williford, were sentenced today in federal court for their roles in a money laundering scheme related to the sale of dogs and cats to research facilities.

C.C. Baird was sentenced to three years probation to include six months home detention and fined $7,500.  His wife was sentenced to two years probation with a $2,500 fine. 

The Bairds also consented to criminal forfeiture of $200,000 in U.S. currency and approximately 700 acres in Sharp County, valued at approximately $1.1 million, including their residence and former kennel facilities, known as Martin Creek Kennels.  The Bairds agreed to pay approximately $42,400 in partial reimbursement of costs of the investigation as directed by several federal agencies, including the USDA.
