HARRISBURG -- The Pennsylvania Game Commission says a Butler County
deer processor has pleaded guilty to illegally selling deer meat.
Sixty-year-old William Kielty III, of Evans City, has been fined
$9,500 and may lose his hunting and trapping privileges for up to 57
years after pleading guilty to 19 game law violations.
Kielty was charged in February following an undercover investigation
that began in 2006 when Wildlife Conservation Officer Randy Pilarcik
started getting complaints about Kielty.
Besides taking illegally harvested deer, the Game Commission says
Kielty stole and sold meat from deer he was processing for hunters who
killed deer lawfully. He was also accused of stealing and selling meat
intended for a food bank program.
