O.G.T. RECEIVES $1000 FROM VIOLATORS

On September 8, 21st Judicial District Court Judge Doug Hughes accepted guilty pleas from two individuals charged in unrelated wildlife cases. And as part of their sentencing, Judge Hughes ordered the men to each pay $500 to Operation Game Thief.
Gary Hoyt of Denham Springs pled guilty to charges of hunting deer during illegal hours, hunting from a public road, and hunting from a moving vehicle. He was ordered to pay $500 to OGT and sentenced to one year of probation. He was also ordered to pay court costs, probation fees and public defender fees totaling $625.

Kevin Moran of Livingston Parish pled guilty to illegally taking a spotted fawn. He was ordered to pay $500 to OGT, $625 in court costs and will have to make restitution to the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries for $524.54, the value of the illegally taken deer.

OGT is a non-profit corporation managed by volunteer sportsmen. They meet quarterly to review wildlife violation cases resulting from information provided by program participants, and to determine and dispense reward amounts. Since the program began, more than $120,000 in reward money has been paid.

If anyone has witnessed or has information about a wildlife violation, they may call Operation Game thief at 1-800-442-2511. They may choose to remain anonymous and receive a reward of up to $1000 if the information results in an arrest. They may also now make a report online at http://www.wlf.state.la.us/ogtonline.htm.

For more information, contact Maj. Keith LaCaze at 225/765-2469 lacaze_bk@wlf.state.la.us
