BOULDER, Colo. A former police officer who killed a trophy elk last year was convicted Tuesday of nine charges including illegal hunting.
Former Boulder officer Sam Carter faces up to six years in prison for shooting and killing the animal last year as it grazed beneath a crabapple tree.
After shooting the elk Carter forged a tag to pass off the dead animal as road kill.
The charges included attempting to influence a public official, one count of forgery, two counts of tampering with physical evidence, first-degree official misconduct, illegal possession of a trophy elk, conspiracy to commit illegal possession of wildlife, unlawfully taking a big game animal out of season, and unlawful use of an electronic communication device to unlawfully take wildlife.
