West Athens man faces new game charges

BRIGHTON — A West Athens man who paid the highest fines ever assessed for poaching violations in Maine faces new charges, state Fish and Wildlife officials said Thursday.

Kendall Judd, 32, was apprehended by game wardens after he allegedly shot at a decoy deer on Monday, authorities said.

He was charged with twilight hunting, wearing inadequate blaze orange and hunting after a suspension.

The agency said that Judd has an extensive record of fish and wildlife violations and is the only person ever extradicted to Maine from another state for such offenses. He was brought to Maine from Florida by wardens in 1989 to face several charges.

As a result, Judd was fined $13,900 for possessing 13 deer over the limit and his license was suspended until 1996.

Judd was scheduled to be arraigned on Dec. 14 in Skowhegan.
