STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - The former head of Colorado’s wildlife agency has pleaded guilty to a hunting-related trespassing charge that happened while he was in charge of the Department of Natural Resources.

The Steamboat Today newspaper in Steamboat Springs reports (https://goo.gl/qISF3i ) that a judge signed off Wednesday on Mike King’s plea of guilty to hunting in a closed area. As part of a plea deal, a hunting-out-of-season charge was dropped.

King did not appear at Wednesday’s hearing. He was allowed to mail in his guilty plea.

King was fined $90 and had to pay $194.50 in other fees. He also could be assessed points on his hunting license.

King was cited in September 2013.

King left DNR in January and took a job as planning director with Denver Water.
