A Hershey man is pleading guilty to violating hunting laws in Lincoln County.
According to the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, 23-year-old Jeremy Kreiling of Hershey pleaded guilty to charges of violation of deer regulations and overbag on deer. The case involved two other men, 20-year-old Brian Spooner of Garden City, Kansas, and 24-year-old Donald Bristol of North Platte.
The case began with an investigation into littering, which resulted in the discovery of deer parts. All three men eventually confessed or cooperated with officials. Kreiling has paid fines, liquidated damages and court costs totaling more than $5,300. He has also had his hunting, fishing and fur harvesting privileges in Nebraska revoked for 3 years. Spooner paid almost $500 in fines and courts costs for obtaining permits under false pretense and hunting without permission.
Bristol faces game law violations and several felony charges stemming from the initial investigation, including being a felon in possession of a firearm. The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission says the public is encouraged to report game law violations by contacting the Nebraska Wildlife Crime Stoppers toll-free at 800-742-7627.
