Washington hunter fined for game violations

Posted: Wednesday, August 27, 2003

ANCHORAGE (AP) A Washington hunter was ordered to pay nearly $24,000 in fines and other penalties following his conviction on state game violations.

A Dillingham jury found Kerry Schmidt guilty earlier this month.

Schmidt, 46, a Northwest Airlines pilot from Colbert, Wash., was fined $20,000 Monday for violations in 2000, 2001 and 2002. Violations included shooting moose in areas closed to nonresident hunters and taking a brown bear in a closed season without a guide.

Schmidt also was assessed $3,300 in restitution and $350 in court charges and was sentenced to six days in jail. In addition, he lost his Alaska hunting privileges for six years and will be on probation another six years after that, Alaska State Troopers said.
