Man fined for illegal deer kills

DANVILLE — DANVILLE – A Liberty Township man was ordered Monday to pay more than $7,000 and placed on supervised probation for one year after pleading guilty to killing three bucks without having a hunting license in Liberty Township.

Fred M. Hagenbuch Jr., 52, of 92 Creek Road, admitted to three ungraded misdemeanors of unlawful killing of deer and to a summary offense of not having a hunting license Monday before Montour County District judge Marvin Shrawder.

Shrawder ordered him to pay $2,400 in restitution including $800 for each buck killed, fines of $4,750 and court costs of $82 or a total of $7,232.

Montour County District Attorney Rebecca Warren said the Pennsylvania Game Commission, which filed the charges, wasn’t looking for incarceration.

She said the defendant will now have to deal “the feds” since he is currently on parole. Frank Adamo, special agent with the U.S. Department of Justice, attended the preliminary hearing. Afterward, he said he couldn’t comment about Hagenbuch who represented himself at the district judge proceeding.

The maximum penalty Hagenbuch had faced, for a first-degree misdemeanor, was up to$10,000 in fines and 18 months in jail.

With the changing of the misdemeanors to ungraded, four counts in the charges were not processed.
