Frank Raven mugshot, Montgomery County Jail

A 20-year old Alabama man who has been convicted of shooting a Montgomery Police K-9 has been sentenced to 20 years for first-degree robbery.

He was also sentenced to 20 years for first-degree criminal mischief and two additional one-year terms for "attempted killing of a police dog and second-degree attempted assault."

The man, 20-year-old Frank Raven pleaded guilty to the charges, and according to the report, he will be allowed to serve the sentences at the same time.

According to, the incident that landed Raven in this position occurred moments after he committed an armed robbery. Police caught up with Raven who proceed to engage them in a firefight. The K-9 that was shot, Bodi, was hit several times while attempting to bring Raven down. The incident left Bodi blind in one eye and he was retired.

Although he survived the shooting, reports that he passed away after being struck with a sudden illness this past July.
