Micky Ray Gordon of Longview, whom state Department of Fish and Wildlife agents arrested last June on allegations of illegal hunting and animal cruelty, is awaiting trial in three counties.

Gordon, 37, is set to go to trial May 22 in Jefferson County District Court, where he is accused of hunting bear, cougar, bobcat or lynx with dogs and three counts of hunting big game without a license.

On June 19, he is set to go to trial in Lewis County District Court on a charge of taking or hunting black bear with bait.

And on Sept. 23, he faces a three-day trial in Wahkiakum County Superior Court. He has been charged with one count of hunting black bear, cougar, bobcat or lynx with the aid of hounds; one count of animal cruelty; one count of unlawful big game hunting; five counts of criminal trespass onto private woodlands; and two counts of felony second-degree malicious mischief.

Gordon's co-defendants, Joseph Allen Dills, 21, Brian Phillip Hall, 40, Adam Steven Lee, 23, earlier pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges and have been sentenced. All the men are from Longview.

Dills pleaded guilty in January in Wahkiakum County District Court to second-degree unlawful hunting of big game and second-degree criminal trespass. He was sentenced to three months in jail, $1,540 fines and two years probation.

Hall pleaded guilty in November in Wahkiakum County District Court to second-degree criminal trespass, third-degree malicious mischief and hunting with dogs. He was sentenced to 30 days in jail, $1,567 fines and restitution and two years probation.

Lee pleaded guilty in November in Lewis County Superior Court to hunting with a suspended license and was sentenced to one day in jail.
