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
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.
