Man Pays “Deerly” for Wayward Shot

A wayward deer which was hunted without a license has cost a King George man a sentence of a jail term plus fines and loss of firearm privileges.

Jamar Allen Tate was hunting the deer on Nov. 11 of last year and fired at the running deer with a shotgun loaded with buckshot, according to King George Sheriff records. But the deer fled untouched in front of an occupied home and some of the buckshot struck the home instead of the deer.  

Arrested, Tate was found to be hunting the animal without a license or proper deer tags and was in circuit court last Thursday to answer charges of discharging a firearm into an occupied home, reckless handling of a firearm, plus the two hunting violations.

Pleading guilty to the misdemeanors, Tate received 12 months in jail with two months suspended, two $125 fines, $300 in restitution costs for the home damage, surrender of his shotgun to the Commonwealth of Virginia, denial of the use of firearms for a period of three years and court costs. 

An associated felony charge was dropped in a plea agreement.
