Father and son plead not guilty to hunting, drug charges in Maine
May 27, 2011
AUBURN, Maine — A father and son from the central Maine town of
Turner have pleaded not guilty to dozens of hunting and drug charges.
Fifty-nine-year-old Everett H. Leonard and his son, Everett T.
Leonard, entered their pleas Thursday in Androscoggin County Superior
Court. They face a total of 35 charges of illegal hunting, drug
trafficking, criminal trespass and indecent conduct.
The Sun Journal of Lewiston says the Leonards, along with two other
Maine men, also face numerous charges in Pennsylvania, where they are
accused of illegally killing as many as 30 deer.
When the Leonards were arrested earlier this year, officials say they
seized hundreds of pounds of deer meat, firearms, deer antlers, bows and
arrows and spotlights, among other things.
