PA: Sheppton man barred from hunting for 18 years

November 9, 2013

From StandardSpeaker.com

POTTSVILLE - A Sheppton man will spend time in prison, pay thousands of dollars in fines and be barred from hunting for 18 years after being sentenced Wednesday in Schuylkill County Court for illegal hunting.
 
Ronald R. Hartz Jr., 50, did not react as President Judge William E. Baldwin sentenced him to serve six to 12 months in prison; pay costs, $7,600 in fines, $100 to the Substance Abuse Education Fund and $179 restitution to the state police crime laboratory in Bethlehem, and submit a DNA sample to law enforcement authorities.
 
Baldwin also suspended Hartz's hunting privileges for 18 years.
 
"You shouldn't be hunting at all. You don't know what it's about," Baldwin told Hartz.
 
After a two-day trial, a jury convicted Hartz on Aug. 27 of 11 counts of improperly taking or killing big game and one count each of possession of a small amount of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was found not guilty of eight counts of prohibited possession of firearms.
