AK: New Mexico man fined nearly $20,000 for Alaska hunting violations

New Mexico man fined nearly $20,000 for Alaska hunting violations

Friday, July 31, 2009

ANCHORAGE, Alaska - The Alaska Office of Special Prosecutions says a New Mexico man has been penalized nearly $20,000 and put on five years' probation for multiple hunting violations.

The Anchorage Daily News says 39-year-old Jimmy Todd Hackney of Quemado, N.M., pleaded guilty Wednesday to misdemeanor counts of guiding without proper supervision, making a false statement on hunting license applications and hunting brown bear without a guide.

Prosecutors say Hackney, described as an assistant big game guide, took two nonresident moose hunters on a guided tour last fall, though there was no registered guide supervising. He also claimed to be an Alaska resident on Fish and Game license applications in 2006 and 2007.

Prosecutors say Hackney's sentence includes a fine of $10,000 and restitution totaling $9,100.

A co-defendant, 57-year-old Dennis West, pleaded guilty July 23 to one count of transporting without a license and was given a $2,000 fine.
