Sentencing Delayed In Kansas Hunting Camp Case

KSAL StaffAugust 20, 2013

A federal judge has again delayed the resentencing of two Texas brothers convicted of running a Kansas hunting camp where hunters paid thousands of dollars to illegally shoot deer.

U.S. District Judge Monti Belot postponed sentencing of James and Marlin Butler until Oct. 28. The brothers had been scheduled for sentencing in September.

A federal appeals court last year threw out their initial sentences, ruling the district court mistakenly based them on the full price of a guided hunt instead of the value of the animals taken.

The Butlers, of Martinsville, Texas, ran Camp Lone Star near Coldwater. James Butler was sentenced in 2011 to 41 months in prison plus $50,000 in fines and restitution. His brother was sentenced to 27 months plus $20,000 in fines and restitution.
