privileges of a Greenback man who pleaded guilty to poaching charges.
State wildlife agents arrested Bill Joel Jennings in December after
getting a tip that he was taking game out of season.
Jennings entered pleas to ten charges on Friday and the court dropped
Wildlife agents say Jennings was staying at another home when the
violations took place and shot the game near the home.
He was accused of killing three deer and a wild turkey out of season
and without a hunting license.
The court took Jennings' weapon, handed him an 800-dollar fine,
assigned him 50 hours of community service, put him on a year's
probation and banned him from hunting and fishing for five years.
