Juneau man receives suspended sentence for hunting violations 

A Juneau man accused of multiple hunting violations in the area, including the illegal shooting of a black-colored wolf many Juneau residents believe was the one called "Romeo," pleaded guilty and was sentenced Wednesday morning in Juneau District Court as a crowded courtroom looked on.

Park Myers pleaded guilty to unlawfully taking big game by using a rim fire cartridge to take a wolf and unlawful possession of that wolf. The charges stemmed from the same Sept. 22, 2009, incident.

Myers also pleaded guilty to establishing a black bear station to hunt bear using bait or scent lures without an Alaska Department of Fish & Game permit, and two more counts of unlawful possession stemming from May 2009 and May 2010.

Judge Keith Levy sentenced Myers to a total of 330 days in jail, all suspended; $12,500 in fines, $7,500 suspended, for a total of $5,000 due within two years. Myers has additional restitution of $1,100 and must forfeit three rifles and surrender any interest in hides generated in this case. His hunting license is suspended for the duration of his probation.
