PIERRE, S.D. (AP) Two more of the six people charged with arranging illegal hunting trips on reservations have been sentenced.

Kirk Johnson of Dupree will serve 10 months in custody and Dan Haakenson of Bismarck, N.D., will do six months of probation.

Each must also pay a $525 fine and special assessment.

Prosecutors say Johnson guided deer hunters who didn't have the proper license and Haakenson changed the names on several big game deer licenses in the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe's database.

They and Frankie Johnson pleaded guilty to misdemeanor Lacey Act violations.

Also charged in the case were Connie Frailing, a license agent for the state and tribe, and Brent and Dawn Barton, who own the Mobridge and Mina-area hunting outfitter South Dakota Adventures.
