KENTWOOD MAN SENTENCED IN NIGHT HUNTING CASE
On August 4, Garrett Graham, 19, of Kentwood, entered a plea of guilty to
illegal night hunting violations and driving while intoxicated in the 21st
Judicial District Court in Tangipahoa Parish. The charges stem from
illegal hunting activity occurring on February 16, 2003, near Amite.
Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Enforcement Agent Toby
Miller and Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Deputy Chris Adams stopped Graham
on Hwy. 10 and found a freshly killed deer in the bed of his truck at
midnight. Graham was cited for hunting deer during illegal hours, hunting
from a public road, hunting from a moving vehicle and underage DWI.
Judge Ray Chutz sentenced Graham to pay a $250 fine for the underage DWI,
$550 for the hunting violations, $232 in court costs, $300 in probation
fees and $175 in public defender fees. Graham was also placed on two years
probation with no hunting during the term of the probation.
