Probation Revoked for SeMo Dogfighting Suspect

BLOOMFIELD, MO - Probation is revoked for a 30-year-old southeast Missouri man charged with dogfighting and drug possession.

Jamie Sifford of Dudley was charged in October after a raid of his property.  Sifford was on probation after a 2006 guilty plea to drug charges. 

Sifford has not yet gone to trial on the October charges.  But at a probation hearing on Monday, a judge ruled evidence suggests that Sifford hosted dogfighting and possessed illegal drugs in violation of his probation.

Last month, charges were dropped against another man arrested at Sifford's home, 29-year-old Curtis Pickering of South Fulton, TN. 

A third man, 30-year-old Jessey Short of Cape Girardeau, is set to appear in court later this month on dogfighting charges.
