Two Petersburg teens convicted of wildlife violations

Posted: November 29, 2012 - 12:09am

Two teenagers from Petersburg have been convicted of multiple wildlife hunting violations.

Alaska State Troopers said in a dispatch Rex Versteeg, 19, and a 17-year-old pleaded guilty to three charges each on Tuesday in Petersburg Court.

The charges were a result of a trooper investigation which showed the teens took a deer during a closed season with the use of artificial life in an area closed to big game hunting, the dispatch states.

Troopers said the plea deal that was reached that called for both teens to lose their hunting rifles and to pay $900 worth of fines and $400 in restitution for the loss of the animals. The 17-year-old additionally lost his hunting privileges until October 2013.
