KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) -- A Texas man has pleaded guilty in Kansas to holding a dogfight at his home earlier this year.

The U.S. Attorney's office says 47-year-old Vertrick Jordan, of Tyler, pleaded guilty Monday to conspiracy to transport animals across state lines to participate in dogfighting.

Jordan admitted conspiring with two Kansas City, Kan., men to hold a dogfight March 23 at his Texas home. Agents who raided the fight detained 30 people and found a dogfighting pit on the property.

The Kansas men -- Pete Davis Jr. and Melvin Robinson -- pleaded guilty in June to transporting dogs to take part in the fight. Davis was sentenced Oct. 10 to 16 months in prison and Robinson to 10 months.

Both sides have recommended that Jordan be sentenced to probation.
