Court backs conviction on illegal guiding charges

Anchorage, Alaska (AP) – The state Office of Special
Prosecutions says a man convicted of illegally guiding a hunting
party in 2006 has been resentenced to serve 30 days in jail and pay
$7,000 in fines.

Randy Blondin of Kodiak also had his assistant guide’s license
revoked for two years and was put on informal probation for five
years.

Blondin was charged after being accused of leading hunts around
Kodiak Island for Sitka black-tailed deer, bear and other game

He was originally sentenced to serve 30 days in jail and to pay
$8,000 in fines. He appealed the decision on a number of grounds,
including that the jury verdicts against him were inconsistent.

The Alaska Court of Appeals merged two convictions for guiding a
hunt without proper supervision but let the remaining convictions
stand.
