Missouri man pleads guilty to hog hunting charge

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - A southern Missouri man has pleaded guilty to leading an illegal hunt for feral hogs in the Mark Twain National Forest.

Acting U.S. Attorney Matt J. Whitworth announced in a news release Friday that 66-year-old Charles Richard Wade of Licking entered the plea Thursday.

He was charged in February with violating federal law and U.S. Forest Service regulations regarding feral hogs.

Through the plea, Wade admitted that he conducted an illegal hog hunt in April 2008 in the forest in Texas County.

Wade operates a guide service that advertises hunts for wild hogs and other animals.

Wade faces a sentence of up to six months in federal prison without parole, plus a fine up to $500. A sentencing hearing has not been scheduled.
