HELENA, Mont. (AP) - A Lincoln man accused of violating multiple wildlife laws has been barred from hunting for 20 years and ordered to pay $17,000 in restitution.

Thirty-6-year-old Jeff Jorgensen was sentenced yesterday in District Court on two felony charges -- unlawful possession of a game animal and unlawful sale of a game animal, both by common scheme. He was ordered to pay restitution to the Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks.

Jorgensen also received two suspended, 5-year sentences to the Department of Corrections, to run concurrently.

Court records say a game warden searched Jorgensen's home in May and found evidence of violations dating back more than 10 years, including illegal hunting of 14 deer, five bears and a mountain lion. Jorgensen was arrested in July.

He also has received six-month suspended jail sentences on a handful of related misdemeanor charges.
