HI: Big Island hunter, Maui hunting ranch owner sentenced in axis deer smuggling case

October 2, 2012

By Audrey McAvoy, TheRepublic.com

HONOLULU A federal judge sentenced two Hawaii hunters to community service on Monday after an investigation into the interisland smuggling of axis deer by helicopter.
 
Neither man was charged with the smuggling itself, but prosecutors said their actions introduced axis deer to the Big Island for the first time and harmed the environment as a result.
 
Daniel Rocha of Mountain View on the Big Island was sentenced to 100 hours of community service for having sheep in his possession without a permit.
U.S. District Court Magistrate Judge Richard Puglisi also ordered Rocha to pay a $1,000 fine.
 
Puglisi ordered Jeffrey Grundhauser to perform 100 hours of community service for taking an unlicensed hunter to shoot game animals on his ranch in upcountry Maui. Grundhauser must also pay a $15,000 fine and will be on probation for one year.
