Washington poacher gets jail time

Posted: Friday, March 14, 2008

ANCHORAGE - A Washington was sentenced to jail for poaching in what authorities said was an illegal hunt that left carcasses across Alaska.

Joseph Querin, 54, of Ocean Park, was initially charged with 21 game violations stemming from the 2006 hunt. He is expected to get a year in jail.

Querin illegally planned and guided for his friend, Carson Kemmer, 25, prosecutors said.

The two men were accused of illegally killing, then wasting the meat of two sub-legal Dall sheep, a moose, a brown bear and a caribou over a 10-day period.

Kemmer agreed to testify against Querin in exchange for jail time and a large fine.
