A Jennings County hunter will be spending some time behind bars.
On Tuesday, Shane Forwalt was sentenced to ten days in jail by
Jennings Superior Court Judge Gary Smith. The sentence stems from
charges that Forwalt hunted on private property without the homeowner's
consent. An Indiana Conservation Officer and deputies from the Jennings
County Sheriff's Department investigated a complaint of the incident in
question that took place November 14, 2010.
The sentence was handed down after a plea agreement was reached that
saw Forwalt plead "Guilty" to a Class "C" Misdemeanor. Along with ten
days in the Jennings County Jail, Forwalt must pay $231 in court costs,
fines and fees, as well as have his Indiana hunting privileges suspended
for one year.
