JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Two former employees of the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks were sentenced in U.S. District Court Wednesday on wildlife-related charges Wednesday.

According to U.S. Attorney Gregory K. Davis, Darrel Eugene Dew, a former MDWFP Conservation Officer, pleaded guilty to taking wild turkeys on federal lands in excess of the bag limit and failing to submit National Wildlife Refuge User Information Cards on twice after taking two white-tailed deer.

Dew was fined $750 plus a $60 assessment fee, and he agreed to forfeit one Remington 870 Express Magnum shotgun, one compound bow, four eastern wild turkey fans, one nine-point white-tailed deer skull with antlers, one ten-point white-tailed deer skull with antlers, sixteen frozen eastern wild turkey feet and eight frozen eastern wild turkey beards.

Jason Thomas Kerr, a former MDWFP Area Manager, was found guilty of conspiring with Dew by failing to comply with the Sunflower Wildlife Management Area Daily Visitor User Permit Card requirements. Kerr was fined $500 plus a $10 assessment.

Both Dew and Kerr were placed on one year of federal probation, which prohibits them from hunting anywhere in the world, and they are both prohibited from entering any U. S. National Forest or U.S. National Wildlife Refuge for two years.
