MONTANA MAN GOES TO PRISON

18 February 2004

MISSOULA - A federal judge here has ordered prison time for a Montana man convicted last fall of helping arrange illegal hunts for a Pennsylvania pizza shop owner.

U.S. District Judge Don Molloy on Tuesday sentenced Dean Ruth to four months in prison for violating the federal Lacey Act, which regulates interstate sale, purchase and transportation of wildlife. Ruth, who lives near Seeley Lake, will be under close supervision for another two years after his release.

Ruth's nephew, Gale M. Ruth Jr., who was convicted on two counts for his role in helping arranging the hunts, was sentenced to two months of house arrest and four years probation.
