Posted: Updated:

MONROE, La., (KNOE 8 News) - A Winnsboro woman, 51-year-old Donna Remides has been sentenced on her July conviction for migratory game bird violations in a Monroe court.

Remides had been cited back in September of 2010 for placing bait to take migratory game birds (doves) as well as aiding and abetting others in taking migratory game birds illegally after La. Dept. of Wildlife and Fisheries and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service agents testified they'd observed her bait a field and then let the field be hunted for doves.

In this latest action, a U.S. Magistrate, Karen Hayes, sentenced Remides to a fine of $2,035, suspended her hunting rights for two years and placed her on supervised probation for two years.

LDWF agents involved in the case were Lt. Scott Watson, Sgt. Joe Chandler, Sgt. Lee Tarver and Senior Agent John Hendrix.  USFWS Officers involved in the case were Refuge Officers John Tarver, Chris Hoag and Special Agent Kash Schreifer.
