Sheriff Ron McNesby pleads no contest to charges that stem from a 2004 hunting trip in Wisconsin. The judge adjudicates McNesby guilty of two counts of illegal hunting/possession of game/birds and placing bait with nondegradable material. McNesby has to pay a fine of about $2,500, and his hunting license in the state of Wisconsin was revoked for three years.
