Ex-wildlife officer expected to testify against co-workers
Defrocked former wildlife officer Allan Wright will be called as a prosecution witness against two former colleagues who are accused of hunting while on duty.
Wildlife officer Matthew Roberts and wildlife officer supervisor David Warner were indicted last week by a Brown County grand jury for theft in office in connection with the alleged hunting on duty charges.
Brown County prosecutor Jessica Little said she plans to call Wright as a witness. Wright is pictured in a photo that led to the investigation. He was granted immunity in the most recent case in exchange for his testimony.
Wright pleaded guilty to violating the federal Lacey Act in another case and was sentenced by a federal judge in Cincinnati last week. He received three months of home confinement and five years of supervised probation for his role in a licensing scheme that helped a South Carolina wildlife officer save about $100.
