Felony poaching conviction

It seems a little ungrateful to be anything other than enthusiastic about a felony conviction for poaching in Kansas, yet it’s hard to get too excited about the expected sentencing for Steven Pittman.

Pittman was found with parts from 60 different deer, but is being sentenced for possessing six. For a felony conviction, Pittman will serve 90 days in a work-release setting, and will be find $6,000. Frankly, for someone who’s killed 60 deer and sold their antler racks, that’s walking around money. Additionally, work-release programs are for people who pose a minimum risk to the community, and it’s hard to see how Pittman fits that description.
