EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - A man has been sentenced for offenses related to the poaching of two deer south of Portland in Lane County.

Oregon State Police say 19-year-old Hunter Dillen Johnson was sentenced Wednesday to three years of probation and a three-year suspension of all hunting privileges.

He must also pay $2,000 restitution to the state.

Police say a deputy stopped Johnson of Noti, Oregon Oct. 26 and discovered the carcasses of a Black-tailed deer doe and a Black-tailed deer spike Johnson’s pickup truck.

Police say Johnson produced a hunting license and tag issued to another person. An investigation revealed Johnson shot the deer with a .22 caliber rimfire rifle and had already filled his valid tag earlier in the season.

Johnson pleaded guilty to five related charges.

Police donated the deer to a church in Florence for families in need.
