January 27, 2012

From MyWebTimes.com

A felon from Ottawa is facing charges connected to goose hunting.
Michael W. Jessen, 26, 1846 W. Champlain St., was charged Wednesday with possession of a weapon by a felon. Conservation police arrested Jessen on a warrant the same day and took him to the La Salle County Jail, where he was released after $1,500 cash bond was posted.
Conservation Police Sgt. Robert Frazier said Jessen was in a goose hunting party Jan. 15 at the eastern end of La Salle Lake near the Exelon nuclear plant, carrying a .12 gauge shotgun. As a felon, Jessen is prohibited from having or handling guns. The gun was seized. Jessen also was charged with hunting waterfowl without state and federal stamps, and without registering with the National Migratory Bird Harvest Information Program.
Jessen has been in prison for a heroin offense.
