CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire logging contractor has been sentenced to prison and ordered to pay more than $71,000 after being convicted of deceptive forestry business practices.

The state Division of Forest and Lands says Andrew Pysz (PYZ’) of Newport was accused of failing to pay for wood harvested from a timber sale he was operating in 2012 in Sullivan County and failing to verify the amount of timber removed. He pleaded guilty to two felonies, was sentenced to one to four years in prison and was ordered to pay the landowner $68,000.

Pysz also was ordered to pay $3,500 after pleading guilty in Merrimack County to contract forgery, and he was banned from logging in the state.
