TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A former Arizona legislator is facing misdemeanor charges over allegations he was found hunting in a closed area in Fort Huachuca.

The Arizona Daily Star reports (bit.ly/1UAnbeJ) that ex-state Senator Frank Antenori pleaded not guilty to a charge of unlawfully entering federal land to hunt game at his initial appearance Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Tucson.

It’s a misdemeanor with a maximum penalty of four months in jail, two years of probation and $750 in fines.

Antenori says he was bow hunting in an area where he has done so numerous times and he’s certain the case will be dismissed when the federal magistrate hears the facts of the case.

The former lawmaker says those facts include Fort Huachuca biologists closing sites for hunting without notice and without reason.
