VIDEOTAPED HUNTING VIOLATIONS RESOLVED FOR DANVILLE MAN

Caledonia District Court

BY ANDREW McGREGOR, Staff Writer
25 June 2004

- The Danville man charged with 16 Fish and Wildlife violations documented on videotapes seized from his home pleaded guilty to each of the charges Thursday.

Carl Sanborn, 34, entered the guilty pleas and admitted he violated Fish and Wildlife regulations from taking a bear in a closed season and possessing a live deer to shooting from a car and violating youth hunting day.

The case was built against Sanborn after Department of Fish and Wildlife wardens received a tip Sanborn and his wife, Tricia, had a live fawn they were keeping in an empty above-ground swimming pool at their Danville home.

In a subsequent search of the Sanborns' home, numerous videotapes were seized. The videos documented the violations committed by Sanborn as well as several others charged in conjunction.

At the conclusion of the change of plea hearing, Sanborn told District Judge M. Kathleen Manley he was sorry for wasting the court's time and commended the Fish and Wildlife game wardens who had been responsible for the investigation.

"I'm thankful to have the wardens out here to protect the wildlife," he said. "He (Warden Dennis Amsden) did a thorough job."

Sanborn was sentenced to 180 to 360 days all suspended except for 21 days to serve in jail and 30 days on the furloughed work crew. He was also fined $1,500 and ordered to make a $1,000 donation to the Fish and Wildlife Fund.

Sanborn's hunting license was suspended for three years as well.

Amsden, who attended the hearing, said that was the maximum possible time for Sanborn's license to be revoked since suspensions cannot run consecutively for the individual charges.

Sanborn was placed on probation for the duration of his suspension with special conditions requiring him to list all taxidermy and mounts he possesses and turn over any illegal mounts, list all mounts he had possessed at the time of the searches last July and note where each is currently, not hunt or accompany anyone hunting until properly licensed, and to abide by all Fish and Wildlife regulations.
