Three illegal deer hunters were recently convicted of
multiple big game hunting violations in Cocke and Jefferson Counties prior to
the opening of the deer hunting season.
In Jefferson County General Sessions Court, Logan Talley,
20, and Timmy Humphrey, 19, both of Newport, pleaded guilty to spotlighting
deer, hunting and killing deer in the closed season, hunting without
permission, and hunting from a motor vehicle.
General Sessions Judge Benjamin Strand ordered Talley to
pay $2,564 in fines, court costs, and restitution for the illegally killed
deer. Jail time was suspended and Talley will remain on supervised probation
until fines and court costs are paid. His hunting, fishing and trapping
privileges have been revoked for four years. Talley also forfeited a Mossberg
.22 caliber rifle to the TWRA.
