MS: Sunflower County Hunter Sentenced For Baiting Ducks With Corn
December 19, 2013
Baiting ducks with corn is a serious crime.
Latham, 47, of Flowood, Miss., pled guilty on Dec. 17, before United
States Magistrate Judge David A. Sanders, in Aberdeen to Taking
Migratory Birds by the Aid of Bait.
The guilty plea arose
out of an investigation which determined that Latham was paying to
have shelled corn placed on one or more duck impoundments in
Sunflower County owned by Latham, for the purpose of attracting
migratory birds for Latham to hunt.
Following his guilty
plea Latham was ordered to pay a fine of $5,000, including
associated fees and court costs. Latham was further placed on
probation for a period of two years, and, as a condition of his
probation, Latham will be prohibited from hunting in any manner,
anywhere in the world, during the course of his two-year
