SD: ND man pleads guilty to SD hunting violation
ND man pleads guilty to SD hunting violation
The Associated Press - Monday, September 29, 2008
The second of six people charged with arranging illegal hunting trips
in South Dakota has acknowledged his part.
Dan Haakenson of Bismarck, N.D., pleaded guilty in federal court to a
misdemeanor Lacey Act violation.
Prosecutors say he was an independent contractor with the Standing
Rock Sioux Tribe and changed the names on several big-game deer licenses
in the tribal database he administered. As a result, several groups of
people were able to hunt on one Standing Rock license.
The hunters were guided by South Dakota Adventures, a business run by
co-defendant Brent Barton in Mobridge and Mina (MY'-nah).
