Celebrity Hunter Pleads Guilty To Lacey Act Violation In Kansas

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn.- A celebrity hunter from Tennessee has admitted to illegally killing a trophy deer in Kansas.

William "Spook" Spann pleaded guilty in federal court to killing the deer back in 2007. Federal prosecutors say Spann, a Dickson County native, killed the white-tail deer on land owned by another person and then took its antlers across state lines, a violation of the Lacey Act.

Spann has been featured on several cable television shows and hunting videos.

Attorneys have recommended a sentence of three years' probation, suspending his hunting privileges for six months, and a $10,000 fine.
