Former Dodge City Police Chief Charged In Hunting Case

KSCB News - October 5, 2011 3:51 pm

The Kansas attorney general’s office has charged former Dodge City police chief Robin James with one count of criminal hunting.

Deputy chief of staff Jeff Wagaman said the charge stems from a Dec. 5, 2010 incident that led the Department of Wildlife and Parks to ticket James for the violating deer hunting laws.

James said he has not received the notice of the violation.

The department has been investigating since December whether James used a spotlight and whether he had permission to be on the landowner’s property. He was not charged with spotlighting.

James resigned in April, saying the investigation was causing issues in the police department.
