RENO, NV, June 3, 2004
Arrest warrants have been issued for a former Nevada
wildlife commissioner and his 23-year-old son accused of multiple hunting
violations in two rural counties.
Churchill County Deputy District Attorney Brandi Jensen
told The Associated Press that the warrants were issued today for former
Nevada Wildlife Commissioner Bradley Quilici of Lovelock and his son, Dario
Quilici, of Cedar City, Utah.
Bradley Quilici resigned from the wildlife commission last
month. He was charged in Churchill County with 12 gross misdemeanor counts
of making a false statement to obtain a hunting license, tag or permit.
Jensen says the former commissioner is accused of
providing false information to the Nevada Department of Wildlife to obtain a
tag for his son.
Each count carries a potential penalty of up to a year in
jail and a two-thousand-dollar fine.
In Pershing County, Bradley Quilici is charged with
killing or possessing a pronghorn antelope without a valid tag, also a gross
misdemeanor, and a misdemeanor charge of obstruction.
Dario Quilici faces 16 gross misdemeanor counts of making
a false statement to obtain a license, tag or permit in Churchill County,
and one count of killing or possessing a pronghorn antelope without a valid
tag in Pershing County.
