Ohio man banned for life from hunting in Idaho

Associated Press - October 14, 2007

SANDPOINT, Idaho (AP) - An Ohio man who earlier this year pleaded guilty to possessing a poached bull elk has been banned for life from hunting in Idaho.

45-year-old Gary Lee Newton, of Columbiana, Ohio, also received a suspended 180-day jail sentence last week and was ordered to pay a $3,000 fine by 1st District Judge Debra Heise.

In exchange for his plea, Heise dismissed three counts against Newton of filing falsified big game mortality reports from 2002 to 2004.

According to court records, Newton possessed a 5-point bull elk taken illegally in 2003, as well as parts of 2 immature bull elk poached in 2005.
