Hunting outfitters enter pleas in forgery case

10/31/2006
By: Associated Press

GRANTS, N.M. (AP) - A husband and wife from Grants have entered pleas in what the state Department of Game and Fish describes as one of the state’s largest cases of poaching and wildlife-related fraud.

Adrian and Henrietta Romero were accused of forging hunting licenses and hunters’ signatures and arranging and conducting illegal hunts.

They also were accused of not reporting state gross receipts totaling $244,000.

Thirty-four-year-old Adrian Romero pleaded guilty to racketeering, tax evasion, fraud, forgery and embezzlement charges. No sentencing has been set.

Thirty-two-year-old Henrietta Romero entered an Alford plea to forgery and was sentenced to five years’ probation.

Under an Alford plea, a defendant does not admit guilt but acknowledges there is enough evidence for a conviction.
