PRESTON — Six men recently reached plea agreements in Franklin County court for the alleged poaching of big game animals in the Preston area during the fall of 2018.

As part of their plea agreements, Jay Reeder and Brandon Porter, of Preston, each pleaded guilty to four felonies and received lifetime revocations of their hunting privileges, according to an Idaho Department of Fish and Game press release. Both men received suspended two-year prison sentences held at the discretion of the court to impose if they’re found in violation of the conditions of their 20-year felony supervised probation. They have both spent 30 days in jail.
