ME: Hunting violations addressed in court

Hunting violations addressed in court

Jan. 13, 2011

BANGOR, Maine — A 17-year-old hunter from Hermon stood before District Court Judge Bruce Jordan on Thursday afternoon.

Appearing slightly nervous, Jason L. Teifert quietly answered “guilty” twice when the judge asked how he pleaded to violating the state’s hunting laws.

He admitted that he and his friend Austin Garber, 19, of Hermon fired at a deer in Levant at about 10 p.m. Nov. 18. Someone who heard the shots reported night hunters to the Maine Warden Service a short time later. The individual apparently recognized the truck the pair was in after it pulled into a Levant driveway for a short time.

Teifert also admitted Thursday that he had been given portions of a wild turkey that were not labeled with the name of the person who registered it and the year it was registered.
