2 ex-wildlife officials sentenced for crimes

JACKSON, Miss. — Authorities say two former Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks employees have been sentenced on wildlife-related charges.

U.S. Attorney Gregory K. Davis says in a news release the men were sentenced Wednesday in Jackson.

The release says Darrel Eugene Dew, a former conservation officer, pleaded guilty to charges related to taking wild turkeys and deer on federal lands.

He was fined $750 plus a $60 assessment fee and agreed to forfeit a shotgun, bow and various animal parts.

Jason Thomas Kerr, a former area manager, was found guilty of conspiring with Dew.

Kerr was fined $500 plus a $10 assessment.

Both were placed on one year of federal probation that prohibits them from hunting and from entering any U.S. national forest or U.S. national wildlife refuge for two years.
