Former state Division of Wildlife Conservation Director Corey Rossi has pleaded guilty to illegal hunting practices, according to a release from Alaska State Troopers.
In an Anchorage court room today (Friday), Rossi admitted to a consolidated count of falsifying a bear sealing certificate and one count of unlawful acts by a big game guide. The plea was part of a deal the former state official made with prosecutors. It also calls for three years informal probation, a one-year suspension of his Big Game License, a one-year revocation of all hunting privileges, and a $5,000 fine.
Rossi resigned from the Alaska Department of Fish and Game in January when the charges became public.
