Convicted dog breeder David Tant was granted parole Wednesday. He served five years and 10 months, and will be released in four weeks or less, well before his release date. He was originally sentenced to 30 years. Attorney General Henry McMaster says the 5-2 decision by the board sends the wrong message to people who have been fighting to stop dog fighting.
Tant’s attorney is Doug Jennings, the retiring Marlboro County representative. Jennings says Tant has already served longer than anyone else for a similar crime in the U.S. He says McMaster is right that Tant’s crime is serious, but he says there is no reason to make his client a “whipping boy.”
Well on a personal note I am really glad he got his parole I think he served far longer than he ever should have…. and I wish him the best of luck in his life!!
