A 30-year-old Danville man, William Ray Huffman, pleaded guilty Wednesday in Halifax County Circuit Court to five illegal hunting related charges.

Huffman pleaded guilty to possessing a firearm as a convicted felon, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, unlawfully shooting/taking game from a vehicle, hunting, trapping or fishing without a license and trespassing to hunt, fish or trap.

The court sentenced Huffman to five years in prison for possessing a firearm as a convicted felon with all but 12 months suspended and to a 12-month suspended jail term for contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

The court ordered the suspended portions of Huffman’s sentence be conditioned on his good behavior for 10 years, beginning immediately, ordered him placed on probation for one year upon his release and ordered him to pay court costs within 12 months of his release.

In addition, the court ordered the defendant to pay $100 fines for shooting/taking game from a vehicle, hunting, trapping or fishing without a license and trespassing to hunt, trap or fish.

Huffman also was ordered by the court to pay a $250 penalty to the Board of Inland Game and Fisheries.
