Man admits attempted cockfighting

Citizen Staff Writer



A Mexican man living in Amado pleaded guilty Tuesday to one count of attempted cockfighting.

Pima County Superior Court Judge Michael J. Cruikshank will sentence Jesus Contreras, 43, on March 30.

Contreras was indicted on 27 counts of cockfighting and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia after a raid on his Amado property in September.

Officers saw fighting roosters with spurs on their feet in plain view in Contreras’ yard, court records show.

Police seized 29 birds and a glass pipe.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
