Hunter Sentenced

December 14, 2011

From WCSI.WhiteRiverNews.com

A Jennings County hunter will be spending some time behind bars.

On Tuesday, Shane Forwalt was sentenced to ten days in jail by Jennings Superior Court Judge Gary Smith. The sentence stems from charges that Forwalt hunted on private property without the homeowner's consent. An Indiana Conservation Officer and deputies from the Jennings County Sheriff's Department investigated a complaint of the incident in question that took place November 14, 2010.

The sentence was handed down after a plea agreement was reached that saw Forwalt plead "Guilty" to a Class "C" Misdemeanor. Along with ten days in the Jennings County Jail, Forwalt must pay $231 in court costs, fines and fees, as well as have his Indiana hunting privileges suspended for one year.
