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.
