MARKSVILLE, La. (AP) - Another man has been sentenced for his role in cutting down more than 100 trees on the Spring Bayou Wildlife Management Area to block access to an area where he regularly hunted.

State District Judge William Bennett last week sentenced 62-year-old Allen Gaspard, of Marksville, to a two-year suspended jail term and ordered him to pay $20,000 in civil restitution, $400 in court costs and $250 for the criminal court fund.

State wildlife officials said Monday that Gaspard was also given five years of probation during which time he will not be allowed on any WMA or to possess recreational hunting or fishing licenses.

Gaspard is the second man convicted in the case. Forty-nine-year-old Keith Savoy, of Hessmer, received a similar sentence in April.
