BEAUMONT, TX (News Release) - A 49-year-old Kennard, Texas hunting and fishing guide has been sentenced for transporting an alligator that he knew had been shot in violation of state and federal wildlife laws, announced U.S. Attorney John M. Bales today.
 
Steve Barclay pleaded guilty on Aug. 13, 2013, to the felony offense of transporting wildlife taken in violation of federal law and was sentenced to three years' probation and ordered to pay a $5,000 fine today by U.S.
District Judge Ron Clark.
 
According to information presented in court, Barclay admitted that on May 8th, 16th, and 20th of 2008 he witnessed John A. McCall, a client for whom he was providing guide services, shoot and kill a total of three alligators even though Barclay knew that Texas law limits hunters to one alligator per hunter per season. 

Barclay admitted that he transported the alligator killed on May 20, 2008 in Leon County to Sportsman's Memory taxidermy shop in Grapeland, Texas.
