South Dakota couple sentenced for hunting violations

Pierre, S.D. (AP) — The owners of a Mina outfitter have been
sentenced for their role in a federal investigation that also
charged four other people for crimes stemming from illegal hunting
trips.

Brent and Dawn Barton own the Mobridge and Mina-area hunting
outfitter South Dakota Adventures.

He was sentenced to just over three years in custody and ordered
to pay more than $12,500 in restitution.

Dawn Barton was sentenced to two years of probation and nearly
$1,000 in fines and restitution.

Prosecutors say Brent Barton guided illegal deer, pheasants,
turkey and grouse hunts on the Cheyenne River and Standing Rock
Indian reservations.

Others charged in the case include siblings Kirk Johnson and
Frankie Johnson of Dupree, Dan Haakenson of Bismarck, N.D., and
Connie Frailing.
