Hershey hunter pleads guilty to deer poaching
LINCOLN — A Hershey, Neb., man has pleaded guilty to game law violations
regarding the illegal taking of deer in Lincoln County, according to the
Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.
Jeremy S. Kreiling, 23, has paid fines, liquidated damages and court
costs totaling $5,348. He also has had his hunting, fishing and fur
harvesting privileges in Nebraska revoked for three years. He pleaded guilty
to charges of violation of deer regulations and overbag on deer.
The case involved two other men. Brian P. Spooner, 20, of Garden City,
Kan., paid $498 in fines and court costs for obtaining permits under false
pretense and hunting without permission. Donald R. Bristol, 24, of North
Platte, Neb., faces game law violations as well as several felony charges
stemming from the initial investigation, including being a felon in
possession of a firearm.
The case began when an investigation into littering resulted in the
discovery of deer parts. All three men eventually confessed or cooperated
with the investigation.
The public may report game law violations by calling Nebraska Wildlife
Crimestoppers toll-free at 800-742-7627.
