A Juneau guide is expected to plead guilty to charges stemming from alleged bear baiting and guiding violations.
Michael Patrick Duby, 37, will appear in Juneau District Court on February 1st. The seven charges filed earlier this month include unsworn falsification, unlawful possession or transportation of game, and bear baiting without a permit.
Duby is owner and operator of FishHunter Charters in Juneau. His father, two brothers, and other associates — including a deckhand and a Hawaii man — have already been charged in related game and sport fish guide violations. Duby was named in charging documents for those other cases including for the alleged establishment of a bear baiting station behind his house on Glacier Highway. But investigators and prosecutors earlier declined to comment about whether they were pressing charges against Duby.
Duby is already awaiting sentencing on a federal charge related to selling migratory bird parts over the internet. That hearing is also scheduled for February 1st.
