APPEALS COURT UPHOLDS TRAPPING VIOLATION

12/23/03

The husband of a state senator failed Tuesday to get the Minnesota Court of Appeals to overturn a conviction for a fur-trapping violation in a case that led to a change in law.

Kenneth Pariseau, who is married to Republican Sen. Pat Pariseau of Farmington, was ordered in February to apologize to a state Department of Natural Resources officer he had a run-in with and pay a fine and restitution of just under $1,000.

A Dakota County judge found Pariseau guilty of improperly tagging a pine marten pelt actually trapped by his grandson. A three-judge appellate panel said the conviction was justified.

In response to her husband's case, Sen. Pariseau got the Legislature to eliminate a requirement that trappers tag in the field and when they are preparing to sell the pelt. Now they only have to tag once.
