Manuel Aceveda, 65, of Kake plead guilty to one count of taking game without proper license and tags. Aceveda was fined $500 with $200 suspended, ordered to pay restitution to the State of Alaska of $1,000, loss of hunting privileges for one year, probation for one year and court fees of $110. The plea is the result of a Klawock Alaska Wildlife Trooper Investigation, which showed Aceveda received a registration moose permit when we was ineligible, and then harvested a moose and possessed it illegally.
John Welsh, 62, of Sitka, appeared in the Kake District Court for trial and Welsh was found guilty at trial of two counts of failure to complete big game transporter activity reports. Welsh was sentenced to total fines of $2,000 with $1,000 suspended, placed on probation for one year and court fees of $250. The judgment was the result of a 2011 Alaska Wildlife Trooper investigation which showed Welsh, a big game transporter, negligently failed to fill out the required big game transporter forms in the appropriate manner.
