AUGUSTA -- A Mount Vernon man was indicted this week on nearly 60 charges connected to illegal hunting in his hometown.
The following is the list of charges against Joseph A. Deleskey, 38, of Mount Vernon, in a 57-count indictment handed up this week by a Kennebec County Superior Court grand jury.
21 counts night hunting (class D)
16 counts possession of firearm by a prohibited person (class C) Five counts hunting deer after having killed one (class D) Five counts loaded firearm in a motor vehicle (class E) Four counts Illegal driving of deer (class E) Four Counts criminal trespass (class E) Unlawful furnishing of scheduled drugs (class E) Closed season violation (class E)
Joseph A. Deleskey, 38, of 466 Bean Road, is charged with 21 counts of night hunting, 16 counts of possession of a firearm by a prohibited person, five counts of loaded firearm in a motor vehicle and four counts each of illegal driving of deer, criminal trespass and hunting deer after having killed one.
Deleskey also was charged with unlawful furnishing of scheduled drugs and a closed season violation.
The indictments, handed up this week by a grand jury in Kennebec County Superior Court, allege misdemeanor and felony charges. An indictment doesn't determine guilt, but indicates that there is enough evidence to proceed with formal charges and a trial in superior court.
In December 2010, Deleskey was fined $100 in Watervile District Court for hunting without a license, according to a published report. The infraction dated to May 15 of that same year in Mount Vernon.
As with most of the dates listed in the indictments, Deleskey is also charged with possession of a firearm by a prohibited person.
Deleskey is prohibited from carrying a firearm because of a February of 2000 assault with a dangerous weapon conviction in Salem, Mass. District Court.
