The Daily News reported 39-year-old Jesse James Clark was convicted last week of extortion and possessing stolen property.
Police say he kept an English bulldog named Jagger that was taken from a Woodland yard in October 2011 by two people who threatened to kill it unless they were given $1,000 and prescription drugs.
Ivey Rose Svaleson pleaded guilty last year to extortion and was sentenced to nine months in jail. Her boyfriend, Johnny Lee Jordan, also pleaded guilty and was sentenced to more than three years in prison.
Jagger was found dead near railroad tracks in Kelso with part of his head missing.
