A case that dates back some time came to light recently when Christian Isaac Peterson was sentenced on Dec. 17 for the wanton destruction of protected wildlife.
It was stated by the Carbon County Attorney’s Office that this case had not been brought in front of a judge yet due to Peterson not readily being located in the area. Peterson, along with two other subjects, engaged in the illegal act of killing deer. During his sentencing, Peterson pled guilty to two class A misdemeanor charges and was then sentenced to formal probation for the duration of 36 months.
During this probation, Peterson will also complete a substance abuse evaluation and treatment. Peterson is instructed to maintain full-time employment or complete community service in a Monday through Friday manner.
A restitution fee for the deer was also set on Peterson in the amount of $3,067 as well as a recoup fee for the public defender in the amount of $250.
