Sheriff charged with illegal hunting
MEMPHIS, Mo. -- For the second time in a year, a northeast Missouri sheriff faces illegal deer hunting charges.
Clark County Sheriff Doug Jones was also cited last year in Iowa for poaching deer.
In the latest case, Jones was cited for three alleged deer hunting violations on Nov. 13 in nearby Scotland County during Missouri's firearms deer season. Jones was charged with attempting to shoot deer from a motor vehicle, from a public roadway and by using an artificial light.
All three charges are misdemeanors. If convicted, Jones could face up to $600 in fines. He appears in court Tuesday.
