SD: Alpena man sentenced for hunting crime

August 21, 2013

From MichellRepublic.com

An Alpena man was one of six sentenced Monday for unlawful taking of migratory birds and Lacey Act violations.
 
Scott Nenaber, 33, was sentenced to one year of probation, and his hunting privileges were revoked for one year. He must also pay a $200 fine, $2,175 in restitution and a $25 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.
 
Eight men were originally charged in this case. One was sentenced in July, six were sentenced Monday and the final man will be sentenced Aug. 28.
 
Also sentenced on Monday were:
 
Jaron Anderson, 22, of Brookings, to three years of probation and hunting privileges revoked for three years. He must pay a $200 fine, $4,875 in restitution and a $25 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.
 
Aaron Eich, 29, Sioux Falls, was sentenced to two years of probation and his hunting privileges were revoked for two years. He must pay a $200 fine,
$4,875 in restitution and a $25 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.
 
Christopher Paclik, 22, of Brookings, was sentenced to one year of probation and his hunting privileges are revoked for one year. He must pay a
$200 fine, $4,050 in restitution and a $25 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.
 
Austin Lueck, 21, of Lake Benton, Minn., was sentenced to probation until Jan. 13, 2015, and his hunting privileges will be revoked for one year starting Jan. 13, 2014. He must also pay a $200 fine, $3,750 in restitution and a $25 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.
 
Ben Burgess, 30, of Sioux Falls, was sentenced to one year of probation and his hunting privileges were revoked for one year. He must pay a $200 fine, $825 in restitution and a $25 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.
 
Nicholas Connor, 21, of Winfred, will be sentenced Aug. 28.
 
The charges stem from an incident in November 2012 when the men -- who formed a group called "Team Those Guys" -- hunted in Miner County and illegally killed 417 geese and six Canada geese using an electronic device.
 
They admitted they knew it was illegal to use the device during that time of year. After killing the geese, the men transported them to various locations against federal law.
 
The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks investigated the case. Assistant U.S. Attorney Meghan N. Dilges prosecuted the case.
