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.
