Carlsbad man pleads to illegal deer hunting

CARLSBAD, N.M. (AP) - A Carlsbad man has pleaded no contest to unlawfully killing a deer and possessing its carcass.

Magistrate Richard Van Dyk on Monday ordered 31-year-old Jacob Navarette to pay $400 and sentenced him to 182 days. The judge suspended the jail time in favor of supervised probation.

A criminal complaint says state Game and Fish officers received a report Jan. 11 about two men killing a deer southwest of Carlsbad with a .22-caliber rifle during a bow-only hunt.

The officers seized the rifle and the carcass.

In a separate incident reported Jan. 29, investigators charged 20-year-old Joshua Martinez with unlawfully killing a deer and unlawful possession of a deer.

A complaint says deer season wasn't open at the time.

Martinez has pleaded not guilty.
