Calif. men fined, jailed, for illegal Nevada hunt
CARSON CITY, Nev.-An illegal deer hunt in Nevada has proven costly for
two California men who were sentenced to jail, fined, and ordered to forfeit
the equipment used when they killed the animal in 2005.
Forty-year-old Jon Warren of Redding and 57-year-old Alan Jeffers of
Anderson were sentenced Wednesday in Nye County after being convicted of
illegal possession of a mule deer, a gross misdemeanor.
The Nevada Department of Wildlife says the two were ordered to forfeit
their truck, trailer, all-terrain vehicles, and firearms. Warren was
sentenced to 45 days in jail. Jeffers was given 60 days. Both were fined
$500 and put on probation for three years.
Game wardens say the two had applied for hunting permits in one area,
then intentionally hunted in a different area.
