United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Michigan man charged with Unlawful Transportation of Wildlife in Interstate Commerce  pled guilty and was sentenced on September 25, 2013, by U.S. Magistrate Judge Veronica L. Duffy. 
Jerry P. Londo, age 66, was sentenced to 25 months of probation and ordered to pay a $1,000 fine, $5,000 in restitution, and a $25 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.
The conviction stems from an incident that took place in October 2011 in Pennington County, South Dakota, when Londo illegally tagged an elk with a Wyoming tag, even though it had been shot and killed in South Dakota.  Londo then transported the illegally tagged elk to Wyoming. 
This case was investigated by the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Eric Kelderman prosecuted the case.
