CARLSBAD, N.M. (AP) - A Carlsbad man has pleaded no contest to unlawfully
killing a deer and possessing its carcass.
Magistrate Richard Van Dyk on Monday ordered 31-year-old Jacob Navarette
to pay $400 and sentenced him to 182 days. The judge suspended the jail time
in favor of supervised probation.
A criminal complaint says state Game and Fish officers received a report
Jan. 11 about two men killing a deer southwest of Carlsbad with a
.22-caliber rifle during a bow-only hunt.
The officers seized the rifle and the carcass.
In a separate incident reported Jan. 29, investigators charged
20-year-old Joshua Martinez with unlawfully killing a deer and unlawful
possession of a deer.
A complaint says deer season wasn't open at the time.
Martinez has pleaded not guilty.
