A Bronx man pleaded guilty Thursday to charges in connection with a dog-fighting ring.
Raul Sanchez, 57, pleaded guilty to charges of animal fighting, cruelty to animals and weapons charges.
He faces one to three years in prison when he is sentenced on February 7.
Sanchez must also pay nearly $102,000 to the ASPCA and is not allowed to own any pets through his parole.
Police arrested him in June.
They say they pulled about 50 dogs, most of them pit bulls, from the basement of a Concourse apartment building where Sanchez works as the super.
