JUNEAU (AP) -- Two Yakutat residents were sentenced for wildlife violations after taking undercover investigators hunting on federal land, the U.S. Attorney's Office said Thursday.
Jeffery Fraker and Gary Johnson were sentenced Wednesday in U.S. District Court after pleading guilty to exceeding the state bag limit and illegal guiding.
Fraker and Johnson took investigators with the Alaska Division of Fish and Wildlife Protection on a guided hunt on federal land near Yakutat. The two were charged with not being licensed as big game guides and exceeding the limit for mountain goats.
Johnson, a convicted felon, was sentenced to a year and a half in prison, to be followed by three years of supervised release. He is prohibited from possessing any firearms.
Fraker was sentenced to a year in prison to be followed by a year of supervision. The judge also ordered him to pay back child support of more than $100,000 dollars.
