Wallace residents plead guilty to fishing violations

FAIRMONT — Two Wallace residents were cited for and pleaded guilty to trout fishing violations.

Michael Earl Fetty, 70, and Tammy K. Fetty, 46, were issued citations for exceeding possession limit of trout and conspiracy to violate Chapter 20 of the West Virginia State Code.

According to the press release, the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources discovered 321 trout at the Fettys’ residence. The investigation determined that the Fettys would fish at Curtisville and Huey Run Lake on a daily basis. The DNR discovered 75  trout from 2012, 90 trout from 2013 and 156 trout from 2014.

On April 2, the Fettys appeared in the Harrison County Magistrate Court and plead guilty to all charges. Each was fined $660.50 for the charges.

The press release said fishermen are allowed to keep six trout per day and have a maximum of 12 trout in their possession at any time.

The phone number for the Division of Natural Resources office for Marion County is 304-825-6787.

Arthur J. Esteppe, Jr., of Dayton, Ohio, was arrested on Wednesday and charged with attempting to obtain controlled substance by misrepresentation.

According to the criminal complaint, Esteppe lied to a Hope Clinic employee about an oxycodone prescription. Esteppe allegedly told the employee and a doctor that he had not received a prescription for oxycodone for 14 to 15 months. The clinic revealed that an oxycodone prescription for an Esteppe had been filled on April 1.

If convicted, Esteppe faces one to four years in a penitentiary or a fine up to $30,000 or both.
