Kenneth Baldwin, 35, Gracie Baldwin, 36, and Luther Brewer, 49, are charged with aiding, permitting and training a fighting dog.
Kenneth Baldwin and Gracie Baldwin — who are husband and wife — face additional charges of being present at dogfights, cultivating marijuana and possession of hash oil.
Gracie Baldwin is also charged with being a felon in possession of ammunition. Brewer has additional charges of being a felon allegedly in possession of a firearm and ammunition.
According to police, the defendants are believed to be involved in a large dog fighting operation that was raided in Benton County, Mississippi on March 31.
During a brief hearing on Friday, Brewer’s attorney, Jessie Garcia, informed Judge Duane Martin that the defense attorneys have yet to receive all of the evidence against their clients.
Martin approved a motion by the attorneys to continue the hearing to 8:30 a.m. on July 12 in the Manteca courthouse.
All three defendants remain out of jail on individually posted bonds.
