BATON ROUGE, Louisiana — A Mississippi man has pleaded guilty in the state court in Claiborne Parish to illegally obtaining a Louisiana resident hunting license.

The state, in a news release Wednesday, said District Judge Jennifer Clayson sentenced Lawrence P. Verzwyvelt Jr., of Long Beach, Mississippi, last week to pay a $500 fine plus $227 in court costs. Verzwyvelt was also ordered to pay civil restitution for two illegally taken deer in the amount of $3,229.

A Louisiana wildlife and fisheries agent made contact with Verzwyvelt on Dec. 20, 2014, at a Claiborne Parish hunting camp and determined that he was illegally hunting in the state, using Louisiana resident hunting and big game licenses although he was a resident of Mississippi.

Verzwyvelt admitted the alleged crimes to the agent.
