7-26-13 campbellsport man sentenced in dog attack incident
A Campbellsport man convicted of torturing teenager he thought was stealing from him is going to prison. Fond du lac County Circuit Court Judge Gary Sharpe sentenced Richard Lisko to six years in prison followed by six years extended supervision. The District Attorney's Office was asking for a prison sentence of between 12 and 15 years. In May a Fond du Lac jury found Lisko guilty of reckless injury and false imprisonment. Sheriff’s Lieutenant Cameron McGee says Lisko ordered his pet Pit Bull to bite Joel Kennedy Jr. and then tied a dog leash to Kennedy’s legs and hung the teen upside down from a wood beam on his front porch. "The situation started off bad with Lisko accusing (Joel) Kennedy's son of stealing prescription medication. It went to worse when Lisko started interrogating young Mr. Kennedy and it got ugly when he (Lisko) put his dog on him and had the dog bite," McGee said. Before he was sentenced Lisko apologized for his actions.
