Joe Biden, the President, just can’t seem to get a break. In the most recent polls of voters, he is far behind Donald Trump. A major concession to his political opponent’s immigration agenda, he recently announced his determination to resume construction of the border wall in Texas. The decision also drew widespread media coverage of the fact that he had to go back on yet another campaign pledge in order to get the desired result. And now comes word that a senior Pentagon officer has been arrested.

Two individuals from Anne Arundel County, Maryland, were arrested on October 2 and charged with aiding a dog fighting enterprise, according to a press release released by the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Maryland. Frederick Douglass Moorefield, Jr., 62, is a senior communications officer in the Office of the Secretary of Defense, which is unfortunate for the Biden Administration.

Officials reportedly executed search warrants at the homes of Moorefield and his suspected coconspirator, Mario Damon Flythe, 49, in Maryland. Twelve canines were taken by federal agents during that operation. A blood-stained carpet, veterinary medicines, dog training schedules, jumper cables, and an electrical socket were also taken by the police.

According to the affidavit submitted in support of the search warrant, Moorefield and Flythe used cables to electrocute losing dogs. Using encrypted messaging applications, the two men advertised their dogfighting business under the names “Geehad Kennels” and “Razor Sharp Kennels.”

On September 21st, prosecutors in Maryland were able to secure arrest warrants. A week later, the two suspects had their initial hearing in front of US Magistrate Court Judge J. Mark Coulson. Before their trial, he had them released under the watchful eye of US Pretrial Services.

The federal grand jury that indicted Moorefield and Flythe on 10 counts returned a true bill on those charges on October 3. They face multiple counts relating to the establishment and promotion of a dog fighting ring, including conspiracy to participate in animal fighting. The two males were arraigned before US Magistrate Judge A. David Copperthite on October 6 and their freedom was maintained.

The maximum sentence for each count in the accusation against the defendants is five years in prison.
